5.0 out of 5 stars Good
A good book, very informative about thunder and it puts it all in child friendly words so it's understandable. I have two of these books and would recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ed Emberly's Illustrations in First Edition are a keeper
My review is of the original 1964 Ed Emberley illustrated edition. The current volume for sale has revised text and new illustrations. In fact, this book has been through a few revisions through the years. The text of this edition is a little out-dated, we don't really use terms like "sonic boom" anymore and frankly the text isn't exactly entertaining either. I...

3.0 out of 5 stars Ed Emberly's Illustrations in First Edition are a keeper, 12 Dec 2013

My review is of the original 1964 Ed Emberley illustrated edition. The current volume for sale has revised text and new illustrations. In fact, this book has been through a few revisions through the years. The text of this edition is a little out-dated, we don't really use terms like "sonic boom" anymore and frankly the text isn't exactly entertaining either. I usually am quite fond of Branley's contributions to this series but he became a little dry and technical with this one as he does fit a lot of information into this picture book. The text covers all about what thunder and lightning are and how they are made, how to stay safe in a storm and why not to be afraid of storms. What I do like about this book and why I'm keeping this first edition for my collection is Emberley's illustrations. He has used a plethora of techniques: foam stamps, stencils, paint splattering and his drawing style as shown in his "how to draw" books is in fine form here

4.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant series of science books, 27 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flash, Crash, Rumble and Roll (Let's Read-And-Find-Out Science) (Paperback)
I really like this book. It clearly explains what thunder and lightening is, how to estimate how far away a storm is by counting how many seconds between a flash of lightening and the crash of thunder, how to stay safe in a thunderstorm and to learn to respect the force of nature. It presents the subject in a very child-friendly way (as do all the books in this series) and contains oodles of bright illustrations to help visual leaners to understand the subject just as much as reading the text. Is only 32 pages but jam packed with fun and facts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gives information on thunderstorms for beginning readers, 2 Sep 1999
By A Customer
This book is designed to provide beginning readers with information about thunderstorms, and safety. It includes information on how to make a cloud, rain gauge and web sites. Very good reading for grade levels 1-3.
