Lift-the-flap first questions and answers
What makes it rain?

With flaps to lift on every page, this delightful book answers the questions that all young children ask about the weather, from Where does wind come from? to Why is it colder in winter? With surprising facts and weather forecasting tips, it makes a brilliant introduction to weather, which is a UK National Curriculum topic for Years 1 and 2.

“An incredibly sweet non-fiction book that will turn your little one into a weather expert.”

Katie Daynes

Katie Daynes has written oodles of books for Usborne, from lifting the flaps on germs and poo, through things to spot in the sea and at school, to the life stories of Nelson Mandela and Marie Antoinette. She wrote My First Chess Book after being taught by her son, Joe Birks, who became the British Under 9 Chess Champion in 2017. She now lives in Yorkshire with her architect husband, two inquisitive children and a hamster called Toffee. When she’s not writing books, Katie likes walking on the blustery moors, meeting friends for coffee and playing competitive board games.
