Tincup and the Tornado delivers the answers kids want!
Tincup is a tiny oak tree living on the bank of a creek. When he experiences his first tornado, it is both terrifying and bewildering. Afterward, despite the destruction of his familiar landscape, Tincup finds new strength and hope-plus he finally has a clear view of the Beaver Pond he's always yearned to see! His story brings a whimsical, lighthearted truth to a very serious weather issue.
Children are fascinated with severe weather, and with the recent tornado disasters in the South and Midwestern United States, this interest can also be laced with fear of the unknown. This book brings those feelings to the forefront and offers a two-page, up-to-date informational section relating to tornado history, tornado safety, and tornado vocabulary. Tincup and the Tornado is the first selection in a series of books dealing with weather disasters, written especially for children.

I bought this book as a Christmas gift for my son. He loved it. He especially liked the animals in the story and the ending after the tornado. Pretty cute book.
I loved the book and so did my granddaughter. She has been afraid of storms but now when the weather turns bad she wants to read Tin Cup and The Tornado.
