A gloriously illustrated first guide to the weather for ages six and up

Discover how storm clouds form, why we have seasons, how seaweed can tell us what the weather will be, why fish and frogs sometimes fall from the sky, and much more. Cinyee Chiu's charming illustrations are accompanied by carefully written text for young readers by children’s natural history author Camilla de la Bedoyere. This book is split into four clear sections (What Is Weather?, Changing Weather, World Weather, and Extreme Weather) and includes a fun search-and-find element.

‘My First Guide to Weather’ by Camilla de la Bedoyere, illustrated by Cinyee Chiu, delves into all aspects of the weather, including, but not limited to, how weather is defined, changes in weather, weather around the world, extreme conditions, and a handy glossary at the end of the book.

The illustrations in the book are abundant and colorful, showcasing the beauty of the land as weather conditions change. From the past (all the way back to the Jurassic Age) to the present day, the information presented will engage anyone interested in learning more about how the weather works, what it means, and more. From knowing the simple fact that moving air is called wind to learning that people who live by the sea sometimes hang seaweed outside of their houses and use it to predict the weather, there are so many cool facts to learn.

In the state of Washington, one winter brought nearly 93 feet of snow, enough to bury a tall building. Coffee, tea, chocolate, bananas, and pineapples grow only in warm places. Sunlight is white light, but that white light is made up of all the colors of the rainbow. Most plants in the Jurassic Age needed the wind to carry their pollen to other plants, rather than how it is today, with plants growing their seeds in flowers and fruits. These facts and so many more await any anxious reader.

The book has short, to the point paragraphs that make it easy for any young reader to focus on, but also for older readers to thoroughly invest themselves in as well. Just for fun, there is a peregrine falcon hiding on almost every page in the book, as an extra means of keeping readers focused as they peruse the pages. There is so much educational value in this science-based introduction to observing the weather around us.
