It's Raining Fish and Spiders
by Bill Evans
Forge, $18.99, 240pp
Release Date: May22, 2012
Bill Evans is a Senior Meteorologist on TV and has won several Emmy Awards. He can be seen regularly on such programs as Good Morning America and heard on many national radio programs. He teaches adult classes on weather as well as appearing at dozens of elementary and middle schools annually. This book is the result of his student’s interest and questions.

It’s Raining Fish and Spiders covers every weather phenomenon from tornadoes to the different kinds of snowflakes. Weather myths and facts, from “Can it really rain fish?” to “Will opening a window save my house during a tornado?” are addressed along with personal anecdotes about Evan’s experiences. He has flown with the Hurricane Hunters and chased tornadoes in Tornado Alley.

Along with the fascinating stories and facts, the book has simple weather experiments that can be performed at home without expensive equipment. If you have a student that is interested in weather, science, and the natural world, or if you are an adult with those interests, this is the book for you. Highly recommended. ~~ Stephanie L Bannon
