What Are Clouds?

From the Series Science Slam!

Is it possible to stand in a cloud? How big is a water-drop inside a cloud? Can we predict the weather by looking at clouds? Whether viewed from the ground or from a plane flying high above Earth's surface, clouds give us a lot to think about! In this book, the questions that kids have about clouds are answered through engaging descriptions of the various types of clouds, fun facts about what makes the various cloud-types different, and explanations of how clouds can differ from one another in ways that tell us about what kind of weather we should expect. 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 about clouds, but also to develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. From vivid details of how a cloud is formed, to an up-close look at cloud-like phenomena such as mist, dew, and fog, this book makes learning about clouds a fun and rewarding experience.
