Jean Allen is a Capstone Press author.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5-Narrow in scope, these easy-to-read books are reasonable additions to heavily used sections of the 551s. They discuss the causes, effects, and power of the featured catastrophes, as well as methods of predicting them, safety measures, and famous disasters of their kind. Each two-page spread contains a photograph, map, or chart; nearly all are in color and many, especially in Earthquakes, are full-page. Unfortunately, they're more decorative than informative. Dorothy Souza's Hurricanes (1994) and Sally Walker's Earthquakes (1995, both Carolrhoda), Seymour Simon's attractive Earthquakes (Morrow, 1991), and Patricia Lauber's powerful Hurricanes (Scholastic, 1996) are all better choices.
