Whatever the Weather

Learn about Sun, Wind, and Rain

Grown-ups are always talking about the weather – this book helps children understand the weather and why it changes from time to time.

Language Edition
How is fog formed? What causes a rainbow? Why do thunder and lightning always come as a pair? Curious children can often ask questions that might even be difficult for adults to answer, but Whatever the Weather knows the facts. Bursting with colorful illustrations, examples, and anecdotes, this book explains complex processes in a snackable way.

Following two friendly characters and their little dog from page to page, young readers can learn about how temperature forecasting works, how some animals have an innate ability to predict the weather, and the effects of global warming. Come rain or shine, Whatever the Weather sees past the seasons and explains the world of weather in all its wonder.

Featuring over 25 vividly illustrated scenes explaining everyday conditions and otherworldly phenomena caused by weather, this title will amaze children and adults alike.
