Ask Max! What’s So Striking About Lightning: And Other Questions About the Weather
By Roger Howerton
Publisher: Master Books

Eleven weather related questions are asked and answered in this 24-page children's paperback. Additional tidbits of information that relate to the questions are included in each two-page spread. Question topics include Groundhog Day, rain, fog, lightning, tornadoes, rainbows, snow, and thunder.

Although this book does not cover sufficient ground to make it the core of a unit on weather, as a compendium of interesting facts, most young weather buffs would enjoy it. For example, knowing the explanation for why water does not always freeze at 32 degrees F. is just the type of cool fact youngsters like to use to impress adults in their lives. This book is perfect to use as science bait, something to whet young appetites for exploring a topic in greater depth.
