What is the difference between weather and climate? Why are there seasons? Superscience Infographics: Weather and Climate Through Infographics discusses the science behind weather and weather forecasts. Readers will learn about the six different types of climates, how the sun's energy effects weather, the layers of the atmosphere, the water cycle, types of clouds, jet streams, and even ocean currents.

This is a book about what causes or changes weather. Weather itself is not discussed other than a single page on the water cycle. So if you're looking for a book about thunderstorms, tornadoes, or other things like that you should look else where. However, if you are curious about the root cause of weather like where wind comes from, this is your book. It covers a wide variety of topics in relation to weather. The pages have attractive layouts, bright colors, and very clear graphics. There is a lot of information in this book and it covers some complex concepts which may require some additional explanation or discussion with an adult for kids to really understand.
