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! This Level 2 Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out comes chock-full of visual aids like charts, sidebars, and hands-on activities.
