Nonfiction book about tornadoes in a chapter book format with lots of white space, good for kids learning to read. Lots of facts and information. Center pages have full color photographs. Book also has some website URLs listed in the middle of the text for more information.
This is one in a series, other topics are lightening, hurricanes, and floods.
If you have a child who prefers independent reading practice of nonfiction information or science topics, or is obsessed with weather, this will be a better pick for their independent reading than a work of fiction.
