This book was too advanced for my 7th grader, but my daughter in 9th grade is enjoying it. I read a review that said this one was their least favorite out of the set, so I look forward to the next few books in this set after this. Highly recommend the Teachers Guide!
Love

I love this series of books. They have different sections that can be read depending on level of child. The photography is beautiful. Everything is brought back to God. Controversial issues are explored. It has some history of weather and talks about the great food and ice age. Even though my child is still early elementary, parts of it will be a great resource for us until he is older.
Great book

My non-loving Science daughter has loved the General Science 1/2 series, especially with the Academy add-on!
I even enjoy it

My son loves learning about the weather. This was perfect. You get so much info. I bought this one first to see how it be, I slowly bought the others only a few more to get. I enjoy these myself.
12 Year old loves this book!

My 12 year old is obsessed with the weather so I bought this book for him a while back and it has been one of his favorite books to read through. He brings it with him all the time when we're out and about!

Brings understanding to weather
Review by
Amazing photos throughout this book! I like that it teaches terms that children may have heard but don't truly understand what they mean. It also explains why weather things that bring tragedy and chaos happen. It shows the child that there was a logical reason that this hurricane, tornado, etc happened. This entire series is so great! I love that it is scientifically accurate and zero evolution, or other non-proven theories, being taught as fact. I can feel comfortable handing this to my child. I don't have to worry about secular indoctrination agendas. Wonderful layout and pictures bring the subject to life! So thankful for this entire series!
Brings weather to life!

My 7th grade daughter loved this book! It brought logic and order to some of the hard to understand weather phenomenons. It was cool to understand more of the day to day weather patterns, as well! Definitely recommend this as part of an Earth Science type of course.
Make sure you have this for Science class!

This was a great book. The photos were beautiful and the layout is wonderful. My only negative was that there is a lot of writing, and my son struggles with writing, so I would have appreciated the quizzes having more multiple choice questions to balance out the written answers. Otherwise, a great book.
