Nonfiction Monday: Tornado

Tornado!: The Story Behind These Twisting, Turning, Spinning, and Spiraling Storms Judith Bloom Frandin and Dennis Brindell Frandin

Do you know what's more terrifying than a tornado? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

One of the nice things about moving from the Midwest to the DC area is I no longer spend all my time in the basement, freaking out about a Tornado Warning. Or ready to sprint to the basement because of a Tornado Watch.

Tornadoes scare the ever-long !@!@#@#% out of me.

This book full of science, facts, survivor stories, and giant pictures of TORNADOES.

It's pretty cool and, if you're me, a little terrifying. I do really like how much it covers in the different areas while not being overwhelming or too advanced for solidly middle grade readers. I also think the design is wonderful-- large pictures, good graphics, great pull quotes and pull-out boxes make for a wonderful design.

True, but we keep the hurricanes and earthquakes to a minimum here.

Hi Jennie, my daughter just watched the film Twister - this would be a good supplementary reading material to the movie. Thanks for sharing.
