The National Audubon Society First Field Guide to Weather provides everything kids might want to know about weather - the unique attributes, the varied forms, the powerful forces - plus an identification guide to help beginning naturalists recognize and understand weather patterns in North America.

Easy-to-read text and more than 450 color photographs and illustrations fully capture the beauty of weather. There's also a removable, water-resistant spotter's card to use in the field or for quick identification.

Written by a university professor of atmospheric science, this is the ideal first guide to North American weather. Really two books in one, it's a valuable at-home reference and a useful field guide to the weather that beginners are most likely to see.
