This title is suitable for children aged 8 to 12 years old. What makes weather happen? Why do the winds blow? Where are the coldest, hottest and rainiest places on earth? With eye-catching photos, "Inside Weather" cracks the meteorological code, teaching kids about the sophisticated equipment scientists use to gather information and make predictions. It explains the difference between "weather" and "climate", presents weird weather phenomena, charts climate zones across the globe and much more.
