Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Wendy Pollock-Gilson
Amazing facts about violent weather including monsoons, tornadoes, hurricanes, and sandstorms are crammed throughout this informational book. Unfortunately, there is too much factual information and no story line, making this a confusing book that provides a little information about a lot of different incidents that have occurred around the world as a result of violent weather. There are some good experiments that could be carried out at home or in the classroom sprinkled throughout the pages. The illustrations clarify the text, however the pictures are arranged all over the pages, making this tough going for a beginning reader trying to find the next line to decode. Part of the "I Didn't Know That" series.
