One of a book series (A True Book), this informational text breaks apart the different components of the particular subject, in this case Thunderstorms. I would use this book, as well as other books in the series, to work for small groups to teach the structure of nonfiction text (glossary, index, headers, side notes, etc.) These series allow for various topics to interest students and conveys clear information on each topic.
Can lightning strike the same place twice? Where does hail come from? How big was the biggest piece of hail found in the United States? Learn the answers to these questions and many more when you read Thunderstorms.

I would recommend this book to second graders and up and to any teacher starting a weather unit.

A great non fiction read to accompany our wild weather unit. Many fun text features. I really enjoyed the connections to tornadoes. Students will find some interesting facts about wild weather in this book.
