There are many different kinds of clouds all around us. Clouds come in diverse shapes and colors. Some clouds are fluffy and others are wispy. Some clouds float high in the sky and others sit low on the ground. Some clouds warn of storms and other clouds tell of fair weather. Compare and contrast the characteristics of different types of clouds through vibrant photographs.
Award-winning author Katharine Hall is a life-long nature lover and avid reader. She hopes the Compare and Contrast series will help children use critical thinking skills to explore and learn about the natural world around them. In addition to Mammals, Katharine's other titles in this series include Polar Bears and Penguins (NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book and IRA Children's and Young Adults' Book Award for Primary Non-Fiction), Amphibians and Reptiles, Clouds, and Trees. Katharine and her husband live in South Carolina with their dogs and cats.
