Trying to find a science book for a pre-schooler? Well, What's the Weather? just might do. It's a picture book with flaps and wheels so something that the very young child can play with as you read. Older children just learning to read may need assistance with some words.
One of the problems with science for youngsters is to hit the right note balancing what children can understand against flooding them with too much information. In What's the Weather? information detail is low but what information is there is simple and accurate.
The trick is to make learning about science fun and informative and this book covers the basics of weather from a scientific point of view without drowning the child in facts, figures, and theories.
A very simple beginning book for the budding climatologist.
