I felt that this book gave a good idea of how tornadoes formed. An interesting fact i learned from this book was: When a high pressure system meets a low pressure system it makes a vortex, i learned that it was not officially a tornado till it made contact with the ground. It also provided interesting facts about tornadoes that ive never herd of. It explained how deadly tornados are and all the damage it causes. It also explained where to go if a tornado were to ever occur.

I think this is an interesting book about tornadoes and how they form. The book provides images of tornadoes and the the destruction that tornadoes can cause. I think it is very informational and students will enjoy reading about it.
