Gibbons, Gail. Tornadoes. Holiday House: 2009. ISBN: 9780823422166.

This is an informational book about tornadoes and how they are formed. It is a very descriptive book for a children's book. It explains where Tornado Alley is, which cloud is capable of producing tornadoes, how the F scale works, how the wind currents come together to form a tornado, and other fun facts about tornadoes. This book is very colorful and creative. It shows a lot of illustrations of tornadoes in action. I think this book is very colorful and creative. It is a pretty good book, but I wish there were photos instead of illustrations cause it looks cooler that way. My recommendation is for children grades first through fifth and children who like weather and tornadoes.

A.K., 7th grade, Eastwood Middle School.
