My son loves this series of books, They are fun and educational, which is why I love them too. This is one of his favourites. The pictures are fantastic and although the book uses quite grown up words due to the content, the pictures make understanding easier. I am learning a thing or two reading this series with him! The little 'did you know?' facts add to the fun, and keep the interest going to the next page. Turtles in hail stones, red rain and frogs and fish falling from the sky! are all interesting facts you will learn about. Who would have thought a book on weather would be the first choice of a 6 year old! Excellent!

Websites do occasionally experience problems. If a link isn't working we recommend leaving it a while and trying again. If the site is still down the following day please report the problem using our contact form. We will fix the problem as soon as possible, or find an alternative link.
If this is the first time you have used Usborne Quicklinks and you can't see ANY links, you may need to adjust your web browser settings. To find out how to do this, see Help & Advice.
The links in Usborne Quicklinks may vary slightly from those described in your book because when a website closes down, or we find a better site, we update the links in Quicklinks. (If we remove any of your favourite sites let us know!)
