Nonfiction - Inside Tornadoes
Every spring we face tornado season in our country. It's scary, especially for kids. They are random or least they seem that way. I don't even live in tornado alley and yet have seen the effects of a tornado just a few miles from my house.
How do these horrible winds form? Why is there a "tornado alley"? How do you protect yourself? These questions and more are answered in Mary Kay Carson's book, Inside Tornadoes.
As with all the books in the Inside series, it is an informative, interactive read. First person accounts, diagrams, pull-out pages, and full color photos make it a great resource for kids and adults.
