Il libro su clima e tempo
Per bambine e bambini curiosi
What makes the wind blow? Where does rain come from, and why do clouds have such strange shapes? How do you predict the weather (without having a supercomputer)? And why is the Earth getting hotter and hotter?
Rosie Cooper and Harriet Russell - with the help of a very knowledgeable groundhog - explore one of the most fascinating areas of science, the weather and climate: from ice ages and the water cycle to the changing seasons and global warming, and the inventions humans have come up with to adapt to all kinds of conditions and environments.
With its amazing facts and explanations that are as accurate as they are entertaining, The Brainiac's Book of the Climate and Weather will turn you into an expert on all things to do with the weather. It will explain the reasons behind the phenomena we see every day, as well as some of the more incredible ones, including fish and frogs raining from the sky. You will find out how to create a rainbow without rain, how to measure the speed of the wind and how to use solar energy for cooking. And, most importantly, you will learn why our planet is the luckiest place in the universe and how you can help protect it.
For its playful and hands-on approach to science and the environment, the Italian edition of the book was included in the reading suggestions of the Premio Libro per l'Ambiente 2021-2022 by Legambiente, the largest environmental NGO in Italy.
