Boy, Were We Wrong About the Weather!

Kathleen V. Kudlinski; Illustrated by Sebastia Serra


Hurricaines, Thunder and Lightning, climate change, Wind, Rain. We were once wrong about all of these. But are we right now? Find out in the latest book in this award-winning series.
   
 Ancient Sumerian warriors used to think that lightning and thunder were caused by an angry weather god —boy, were they wrong!
 
Even today once common ideas about how our weather and climate work are changing as new discoveries are being made. Kathleen V. Kudlinski and  Sebastià Serra team up to debunk old—and sometimes silly—myths about weather and to celebrate the pioneers that made meteorology the science it is today.
 
This award-winning series is especially meant for the budding scientist and is perfect for children who are fascinated by the natural world and how it works.
