What is a tornado? In these times of extreme weather, Gail Gibbons' newly updated, informative introduction to tornadoes answers that question and provides practical safety tips.

Tornadoes form when warm, moist air rises from the ground and meets colder, denser air moving toward the ground. The two air currents begin to swirl, incorporating more and more air until they produce a funnel-shaped cloud. Winds can spin at over 261 miles per hour (420 kilometers per hour)!

Newly reviewed and endorsed by meteorological experts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Tornadoes! It is a perfect introduction to the knowledge of this fascinating phenomenon. With Gail Gibbons's acclaimed accurate text and detailed illustrations, this book contains more than fifty facts about tornadoes, including how they form, what scale is used to classify them, and the safest places to take shelter if they happen. a tornado occurs nearby.

Because of their simple, kid-friendly texts, colorful illustrations, and clear, informative diagrams, Gail Gibbons' nonfiction books are considered “indispensable in any collection” ( Kirkus Reviews ). They present complex topics in a clear and accessible way for young readers who are just beginning to explore the world.
