Short, clear sentences explain how clouds form and how rain and hail are formed. Vocabulary: water droplets, water vapor, evaporation, condensation.

No back matter. There is a newer edition of this book.

I love that this book allows one to understand the difference in day and night and allows activities to take place for engagement. The illustrations are exquisite and truly allow one to grasp the understanding of day and night.
