Where Do Puddles Go? by Childrens Press Chicago

Feel the Wind
This book is great to introduce wind.
Clouds
We love reading parts of this book to teach students about different aspects of clouds. There are a few different pages that discuss what clouds are made of and it also goes over the different types of clouds.
The Cloud Book by Tomie dePaola
This is a great book to read on the first day of learning about clouds. The first half is especially good for illustrating the different types of clouds and what they look like.

This book is very relate-able to students and can tie temperature into real life experiences. It is great for introducing the idea of heat and how heat travels.
