Sun, wind and rain - the children's book about the weather
Why do adults always talk about the weather? This book makes children want to look behind the cloud cover and understand the weather and its stormy and changeable phenomena.
Why do fields and meadows often disappear in the morning fog? How are the colors of the rainbow created? Why do thunder and lightning only crack and flash together? Children often ask curious questions that even many adults cannot answer precisely - Sun, Wind and Rain has many clever answers.
In the book, children follow two lovable characters and their little dog. From page to page you will find out, among other things, how a weather station works and what effects global warming has. Sun, wind and rain explains weather phenomena across all seasons.
