Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. 

Its 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, Its Raining Fish and Spiders is an entertaining and educational addition to the library of anyone interested in weather, science, and the natural world.

Synopsis:

Emmy Award-winning meteorologist Bill Evans pulls out all the stops in this one-of-a-kind book about weather for middle-grade readers. Packed with graphics and amazing photos, It's Raining Fish and Spiders explains tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, “fish rain,” and much more in an exciting, you-are-there style. Evans shares his personal experiences—riding with Hurricane Hunters and tornado chasers and visiting the Coldest Place on Earth! Also includes experiments you can do at home!
