Storm Warning - Tornadoes by Carol Baldwin

Raintree Freestyle is a new, eye-catching range of colourful non-fiction books for the less able and reluctant reader, aged between 11 and 14 years. Designed for students with a reading age of 8 and 9 years, these high interest books will enable readers to encounter curriculum-linked topics at an appropriate reading level. Featuring dramatic examples from all over the world, 'Turbulent Planet' looks at extreme, dangerous or problematic aspects of the shaping of the Earth's surface such as erosion, earthquakes, volcanoes and wild fires. Each title examines the causes and effects of each event, how the damage could have been reduced, or even prevented; and the precautions readers could take should they find themselves in one of these situations.
