In the story of The Wizard of Oz, the main character Dorothy gets carried away from her home by a tornado. This tornado seems harmless enough, except that it carries within its winds many farm animals, and a house that later falls on the bad witch. Real tornadoes are much the same. Strong winds that are a part of the tornado can pick up and carry cars, people, houses, and animals. This destruction is why it is so important to be aware of a possible of a tornado. Elementary children will see photographs of the destruction a tornado can cause. They will also see photographs of actual tornadoes that have been taken by private citizens, and by scientists. Seven chapters will explain how tornadoes form, how they sound and what they look like. Activity questions are included throughout text, as well as a glossary and index at the end. This is one of eight titles in the "Read About" series. 2000, Aladdin Books Ltd., Ages 6 to 10, $22.79. Reviewer: Joyce Rice—Children's Literature
