This is a wonderful book to help children understand that air is all around you , takes up space and moves. Has simple experiments to show and probe air takes up space.

Young stargazers learn about different star colors and brightnesses, how to locate major constellations, and how to make mini planetariums by using coffee cans and flashlights.

Short, clear sentences explain how clouds form and how rain and hail are formed. Vocabulary: water droplets, water vapor, evaporation, condensation.

No back matter. There is a newer edition of this book.

I love that this book allows one to understand the difference in day and night and allows activities to take place for engagement. The illustrations are exquisite and truly allow one to grasp the understanding of day and night.
