Description

One of the things Bill Evans enjoys the most is talking to young people about weather. Middle-schoolers in particular, Evans says, are deeply interested in the natural world and in weather. It's Raining Fish and Spiders covers everything, from tornadoes and hurricanes to lightning and the different kinds of snowflakes. Evans addresses weather myths and facts, from "Can it really rain fish?" to "Will opening a window save my house during a tornado?" Evans also tells his most exciting personal weather stories: flying with the Hurricane Hunters, riding pell-mell through Tornado Alley with storm chasers, and visiting the coldest place on Earth. The book includes simple weather experiments that can be performed at home without expensive equipment. Extensively researched, fact-filled, and packed with charts, tables, illustrations, and amazing photographs, It's Raining Fish and Spiders is an entertaining and educational addition to the library of anyone interested in weather, science, and the natural world. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
