This book gives tons of information on tornadoes and hurricanes through a question and answer format. Has lots of pictures to go along with it as well. Instructional Use:
This book would be a perfect for a unit in science on weather or for a research project. Correlates with NAD reading standard LA.4.RI.3 ( )

Good solid question and answer book for earth science. Boys will especially appreciate the format of this book. A good book to have children read to create question and answer formatted books of their own. ( )

After reading this book, I found out tornadoes really do twist. They are considered to be windstorms. They start out beging white and turn to black and gray when they hit the ground. The direction a tornado twists depends on the hemispheree in which it is located in. On average, there are 800 tornados a year. This book also includes many facts about hurricanes. This is a very good book. I really enjoy the way it is set up. My only problem is due to the copyright date I am sure that many information this books contains should be updated. I would definetly have this book in my library to compare to newer updated books. ( )
