Sun and Storms: Canadian Summer Weather (Canada Close Up series)

We all like to talk about the weather in this country and this series (Snow and Ice: Canadian Winter Weather,Sun and Storms: Canadian Summer Weather) provides a simple introduction to the varied weather of Canada through the four seasons. Each book gives an overview of the season’s weather and then goes on to describe specific weather conditions and why they occur. In the winter we can experience snow, rain, ice storms and blizzards; in the summer, the weather can include wind, rain, thunder and lightning, tornadoes, hurricanes and heat waves. The author cites many examples of the various kinds of weather that happen across the country, complete with dramatic photos.

The books are attractively presented and should be accessible to a young audience. They are done in the easy-toread format and include a table of contents and a glossary. Each topic has its own chapter printed on different coloured paper. There are lots of colour photos, some explanatory drawings and fact boxes (about 3 or 4 per chapter). This is a useful series, inexpensive, with a Canadian focus, and appropriate for a wide range of grades.
