Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From simple questions like "What color are tornado funnels?" to more complex ones like "How is a hurricane born?" this book delivers the answers kids want.

Whether children hear about tornadoes and hurricanes on television, live in vulnerable areas or learn about severe weather at school, they are fascinated with and terrified by powerful storms. Kids want to know more about them, both to satisfy their curiosity and to ease their fears. This book explains everything about these storms, from how hurricanes get their names to what a tornado looks like from a distance.
