Reviews - What do customers think about Weather Book w/SG?
Photographically beautiful Mar 13, 2007
This text has numerous photographs and illustrations. The text is a little cumbersome for some readers. It does provide opportunities for enriching scientific vocabulary. As homeschoolers, our family is using this text together with several others. This definitely shouldn't be the text of choice for very small children, but it is ideal for older, more experienced readers/scientists.
Enlightening Jun 3, 2006
This book was very useful when teaching my children about the weather. We learned lots of interesting things, and all from the perspective that God was in control of it all. They even explain El Nino. The pictures are colorful and wonderful. Anyone could benefit from using this book.
