"...good introduction to basic weather facts, characteristics, and behaviors...Solid visuals, good graphics that clearly explain how weather "happens," and brief, intermittent "You Decide" segments that encourage critical thinking, combine to make this a fine choice..." -- Video Librarian March/April 2002
