We love discovering new nonfiction books. Gusts and Gales--A Book About Wind, by Josepha Sherman and illustrated by Omarr Wesley, is a great book to introduce children to weather. The opening question in the book asks about wind and then as the book unfolds, more is learned about winds (global and local), hurricanes, and tornadoes. Also included in this book are directions about making a tornado, fast facts, and a glossary. The glossary is a fun way for children to check their understanding. The illustrations make this book a great tool!
