Book Review: Weather Near You

Weather Near You, by Mary Lindeen is an informative book that provides a fun way for children to learn about various aspects of weather.

As a part of the Read and Discover Science series, this book encourages children to learn about scientific subjects while working on their reading skills. According to a note from the publisher: "The series can be used with beginning readers to practice high-frequency words, academic language, and to expand comprehension of life, earth, and physical science."

Within thirty-two pages, there are interesting weather facts and Did You Know sidebars intermixed with intriguing full-color photographs. Also, there are Connecting Concepts and Word List sections.

Weather Near You is a children's picture book that's geared toward kindergartners to third graders.

Note: I received this book from NetGalley, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.


  1. Awww, I was hoping this was an adult book.

    1. Sorry, yet it's a nice children's book. :)
