Review — Weather ABC

With pretty pictures, careful selection, and a lot of creativity, B.A. Hoena’s Weather ABC is great fun for young and curious readers. The book introduces both uppercase and lowercase letters, as well as fun facts about weather. My five-year-old son loved the book so much that he read it from cover to cover and enjoys reading it again and again. The sentences are small and easy to read for a beginning reader.
