    When you stop to think about it, weather is incredible: it's whimsical, varied, ever-present, sometimes destructive, and other times, beautiful. This immersive illustrated nonfiction book is an invitation for readers to ponder weather and approach it with a newfound sense of understanding, awe, and wonder. Through four chapters - sun, rain, ice and snow, and extreme weather - this book explores different weather phenomena, from rainbows and sunsets to clouds, frost, and rainstorms. Moments of distress and destruction are offset by the calm after a storm or the peaceful feeling of a blanket of fresh snow. Evocative paintings convey the sheer power of weather, while lyrical text captures the richness of our natural environment. The book takes an inspiring tone rather than an exhaustive, factual one. The book explicitly makes the links between extreme weather, climate change, and human activity, and poses questions often, inviting young readers to observe and inquire about their own environment or to imagine other ones.

    Gleebooks review:
    A reason to rejoice: another new release from Teckentrup, creator of simply gorgeous books. Turning her attention to the weather, she addresses ‘Sun’, ‘Rain’, Ice and Snow’ and ‘Extreme Weather’ in brief explanatory text, as well as offering lyrical observations and accompanying atmospheric art. Differing from her previous books, this is a meditative exposition of weather, prompting us to muse on natural phenomena and their effects, recognising human responsibility in climate change, and inspiring reflection on how the weather—that ever-present entity—affects each of us. More impressionistic in style than her other nonfiction books, Look at the Weather educates while urging us to do exactly as the title bids. An extensive glossary and author notes extend the suitability from 5-10 years old. Lynndy
