    A few years ago this book would've been considered science however I believe it is closer to fact. A few years ago this book would've been considered science however I believe it is closer to fact.

    Whatever the Weather is designed to get your family outside to explore in a variety of weather conditions. It begins with an overview of weather exploration: questions to ask, basics of the water cycle and other science behind weather, and measurements such as the Beaufort Scale for wind speeds. The following chapters are organised by various weather phenomena; cold/snow, rain, sun , and wind. Each contains ideas and projects to learn more about that particular phenomena and art projects that us Whatever the Weather is designed to get your family outside to explore in a variety of weather conditions. It begins with an overview of weather exploration: questions to ask, basics of the water cycle and other science behind weather, and measurements such as the Beaufort Scale for wind speeds. The following chapters are organised by various weather phenomena; cold/snow, rain, sun , and wind. Each contains ideas and projects to learn more about that particular phenomena and art projects that use the weather as a key component. There are also sidebars that provide a refresher for parents on the science behind each project and offer suggestions for ways to extend the investigation if you have kids that want to learn more. There's an emphasis on observation and the art projects tie in as ways to either record your findings (such as tracing your shadow at various times of day to track the sun) or to help make observations easier (painting leave to help highlight the veins or building a boat to see how water moves). Finally, there's a section in the back with a great list of resources for even further explorations.

It give basic information of the science behind the weather that they experience each day and additional options for exploring beyond the book. Recommendations or Comments: As the forward explains, this is a book has simple activities that offers children to explore and discover in the weather around them. Many of the projects are done outdoors, so make sure you dress appropriately. If you are uncomfortable, the child will pick up on it. Also many of the activities I have seen before, but some were new. The photographs are very nice, but I am curious if the pictures of the projects were done by adults. The infographic cover style contrasts with the interior even though they smatter the graphics throughout. I think homeschoolers will like this resource as well as involved parents and caregivers.

    ARC provided in exchange for review. I loved this book and so did my children. One of their favorite activities was using leaves to make paintings. This is a great book for all of those "why does ____ happen." The experiments are easy to adapt and make relatable for kids of different ages. I would recommend this book for anyone wanting fun and easy ways to show science to children. ARC provided in exchange for review. I loved this book and so did my children.
