What is Wind?

What is Wind?
Robin Johnson
What exactly is wind and where does it come from? This small, informative book will help parents and teachers answer these questions. Readers will learn about air pressure, the effects of wind on plants and animals, and tools that scientists use to harness the wind. Each page is filled with colorful illustrations, charts, photographs, and fact bulletins. The graphics and variety to each page will engage and entertain children while helping them learn more about the science of wind. The vocabulary is simple enough and the print large enough that a young reader can read the book for themselves. Several bonus features include a wind craft for children to make, instructions for a weather journal, a list of books and websites for further study, and a glossary of wind words. This little book only has twenty four pages, but it packs in a ton of information. This book would be a great resource for schools and home school parents to supplement the science curriculum.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
