Name of the book: Storms
Author: Seymour Simon
Description of the content:
We live at the bottom of a blanket of air called the atmosphere. The atmosphere is always moving, sometimes slowly, other times quickly and violently. These changes in the atmosphere are called the weather. We call the violent changes, storms. Thunderstorms are the most powerful electrical storms in the atmosphere In twenty minutes, a single thunderstorm can drop 125 million gallons of water and give off more electrical energy than is used in a large city during an entire week.
There are many ancient myths about storms. The early Norsemen believed that Thor was the god of thunderstorms. They thought that lightning struck when Thor threw his mighty hammer and thunder rumbled when his chariot struck storm clouds.
Nowadays, radar, satellites, and computer keep track of storms and help scientists to forecast their behavior. But the more scientists learn about storms, the more complicated they find them to be. Storms still arouse our sense of awe and wonder.
I recommend this book because it is full of information about storms and how to avoid them.
