When we look up to the sky, we see clouds. Sometimes rain falls from these clouds, and sometimes we get snow, sleet, or hail. Why are we drenched with water some days, blanketed with snowflakes on others, and pelted by hard chunks of ice on others? This title introduces young readers to the different types of precipitation and provides a clear, compelling presentation of how and why different forms of water fall from the sky. Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of an early elementary audience, this colorful, fact-filled volume gives readers a chance not only to learn, but also to develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. From vivid graphics illustrating the forces that produce rain, snow, and hail, to fun, high-interest facts about extreme amounts of rainfall and quantities of snow, this book makes learning about precipitation a lively, engaging experience.
