TORNADO! The Story Behind These Twisting, Turning, Spinning, and Spiraling Storms.
Tornado! is another one of those amazing National Geographic books. I know I say it all the time in my reviews, but what makes National Geographic books amazing are the pictures. You'll be amazed at the photos in this one as it chronicles the destruction that these tornadoes can cause and even witness them in action. But readers will also enjoy the first-person accounts, news reports, and facts behind these twisters. Young readers will enjoy learning that twisters are born in thunderstorms and are often accompanied by hail, most tornadoes in the Northern Hemisphere rotate counter-clockwise and almost all tornadoes in the Southern Hemisphere rotate clockwise.
This is an amazing resource and a must have for any young reader interested in these twisting, turning, spinning and spiraling storms.
