Do you know what would happen if the Earth's atmosphere suddenly disappeared? Deprived of oxygen and bombarded by ultraviolet radiation, our bodies would swell, our blood would boil, and our eardrums would explode. Is there a kid on the planet who wouldn't think that information was just too cool for words?

As a homeschooling mom (with a Ph.D. in microbiology), author Rebecca Rupp learned first-hand that kids respond best to scientific information when it is presented in a way that is fun, lively, and off-beat. Rupp's approach is as much fun for grownups as it is for kids. Who doesn't want to know whether the flapping of a butterfly's wings can eventually set off a tornado? Or why snow that fell white turned pink on the ground? Or that the Hindenberg exploded after lightning ignited the flammable paint on the zeppelin's outer cover? Bursting with the kinds of ideas, facts, statistics, and explanations that kids find irresistible, Weather! is the ultimate book for every budding meteorologist.

Sample experiments and projects from Weather!:
Start a Tornado in a Bottle
Make Your Own Compass
Set Off Lightning on a Plate
Make Your Own Hygrometer
Become a Real Rainmaker
Whip Up a Batch of Atmosphere in a Pan
And more!
