Branley's 1997 title includes original illustrations by Mary Ann Fraser. This book also includes a glossary and a find out more section with an activity about the water cycle. Both the text and the artwork were newly vetted for accuracy by Don W. Hen and Dr. Sonia M Kreidenweis, Professor of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. This is a Level 2 Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science title, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards.
