   Inappropriate for the targeted age group
A sentence like the floating bodies of people and animals is not one that belongs in a reader for grades 1-3. This was billed as a science reader, but there was only a little science in it. I understand that specific examples and even some discussion of the destruction that could result may add a level of interest to the book. But the death toll associated with some of these examples was inappropriate for 6-year-old children. In general, we are fans of the series Step into Reading, with most books being appropriate in terms of reading level and interest. This is the first time we have been very disappointed by the judgment on the content.
   Informative and keeps their attention

Has been waiting for a book that focused on the weather science aspects of tornadoes. This book talks a lot about the death that tornadoes can cause and I don 't agree that it is for ages 5-8 at all.
   Not for young children.
Similar to the book Volcanoes in this series, this book is more about natural disasters resulting from tornadoes that affect people - less about the natural phenomenon of tornadoes. I would have preferred not including death counts of 6,000 people and stories about children being sucked by a tornado in their school, though. The editors obviously don 't have children!
   Great Book!
This is a book that I use in my 3rd grade classroom with my lower students. My children learned a lot from information.
