W is for Wind
by Pat Michaels:
School Library Journal
Gr 1-4–Each letter in this picture book presents information about a type of weather, environmental condition, or related terminology. The primary text floats on top of a colorful, detailed painting and consists of two rhyming couplets. This brief content is suitable for reading aloud or for younger independent readers. Lengthy sidebars on every spread provide additional details and vocabulary for more advanced readers. Classrooms that conduct morning weather reports or include the topic in their curriculums will find this title informative throughout the changing seasons. Rose does an excellent job capturing the audience's attention with her detailed, realistic paintings that often include children experiencing the various conditions. A useful and attractive addition.–Christine E. Carr, Lester C. Noecker Elementary School, Roseland, NJ
