Reviews - What do customers think about Tornado: Nature in Action?
Great for older kids Feb 22, 2008
I bought this for my 3 1/2 year old future storm chaser. It has too many words for his attention span but is great for older kids. My little one did like looking at the pictures though. The pictures were very nice and the author takes the time to include how to pronounce some of the words, like mesocyclone, as well as define them. He also includes a glossary and fascinating facts section at the end. I find it to be a very comprehensive book for young weather enthusiasts.
