Review:

“The Good Question! series continues to offer interesting facts in an appealing fashion. Working within a set format, the skilled authors organize questions and two- or three-paragraph answers in ways that introduce and cover each subject appropriately. On each spread, clearly captioned illustrations -- maps, drawings, close-up photographs, and realistic images -- face the text. The questions are those a child reader might ask. . . . What Makes a Tornado Twist? explains the origins of the weather around us, describes different storms, distinguishes between weather and climate, and touches on climate change.. . . . Attractively presented, with up-to-date, accurate information, these science titles are a first choice.”
