    Review by: AudioFile Magazine - February 1, 2011
    "Marion Dane Bauer brings the wonders of weather to the youngest readers and listeners in her Ready-to-Read books, CLOUDS, RAIN, SNOW, and WIND. She respects her audience and in each book provides much to think about. Paula Parker's expressive narration is paced for young listeners to take in factual information-for example, that cirrus means "curl" and stratus means "layered"-and then observe this fact portrayed in illustration. Deceptively simple science -that cold and hot air are continually changing places, for example-is given the studied measure necessary to take it in. Additional facts about the topic conclude each book. Background music completes each recording. "
    Review by: School Library Journal - September 1, 2010
    " Each of these books is part of the "Ready-to-Read" weather series, written at level one. In a very simple language, they provide beginning readers with good basics on various aspects of weather. A fact page at the end of each book offers additional interesting information. Rain teaches a simplified version of the water cycle. Wind introduces the idea of the earth spinning and cool and warm air movements. Snow explains how snowflakes form, and Clouds introduce cirrus, stratus and cumulus clouds. Paula Parker reads each book in a measured, warm voice. Light music and sound effects are included but do not distract from content. Page turn signals are optional. Audio quality is excellent, and youngsters will enjoy perusing John Wallace's bold water color and ink illustrations as they read along. Primary teachers will welcome this series for their reading centers."
