Text and illustration combine to provide an engaging look at the characteristics and causes of blizzards.
Publisher Summary
An introduction to the conditions that trigger severe winter weather distinguishes blizzards from regular snowstorms and traces the events of the infamous 1888 blizzard that swept through eight American states, stranding people in dangerous conditions. By the award-winning author of How Deep Is the Ocean? Simultaneous and eBook.

All blizzards are snowstorms, but not all snowstorms are blizzards! What is the difference? How much snow falls during a blizzard? How fast are the winds? How cold does it get during a blizzard? Read and find out!

Written by acclaimed children’s science writer Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld and with beautiful illustrations by Maddie Frost, What Makes a Blizzard comes chock-full of visual aids like charts, sidebars, and hands-on activities—including how to keep a winter weather journal and how to observe what a snowflake really looks like.

This is a Level 2 Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science title, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards. Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.
