Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
What's the weather? Wake up to this ultimate reference, teeming with fascinating facts, amazing features, the latest science, and tons of close-up images of the wildest weather on the planet. Did you know that a bolt of lightning can crack through the air at up to 136,000 miles per hour and reach temperatures hotter than the surface of the sun? Or that if all the ice in the Antarctic melted, the oceans would rise by about 220 feet? Welcome to the amazing world of weather. From how weather happens to the most extreme weather in the world, it's all covered in this easy-to-use reference featuring all the major types of weather and what kinds of weather happen in particular places, from the desert to the tropics to the poles. The main content is highlighted with fun facts, Did You Know? details, and colorful photos and graphics. Thematic spreads cover topics such as climate change, weather survival stories, animal adaptations to weather, and much more. Fans of other National Geographic Kids Ultimate "pedias" in the same series--Dinopedia, Bugopedia, Reptileopedia, Oceanpedia, and Predatorpedia--will want to find a place for Ultimate Weatherpedia on their bookshelves.

    Kids who are curious about a wide range of weather phenomena—whether that's violent storms, strange cloud patterns, or bizarre lightning strikes—will be fascinated by all the information provided in this fun, fact-filled, intriguingly designed book. In well-organized chapters, it covers weather wonders (such as animals that can predict the weather), meteorology (storm chasers), and various weather conditions and the types of storms they cause. The book walks readers through different climate zones (tropical, temperate, arctic) and describes, in scientific detail, the people, animals, and plants that can be found there. Chapters are devoted to climate change, as well as to strange weather occurrences like volcanic lightning, fire tornadoes, dark lightning, and moonbows (rainbows that appear in moonlight). The text is generously accompanied by beautiful color photographs, diagrams, time lines, survival stories from people who have lived through extreme weather, Bet You Didn't Know factoids, and activities, and the information is fully sourced, making this a useful resource. Young readers with weather-related questions will find answers in this jam-packed book. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
