From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-7-Using photos, maps, and diagrams, each volume presents a wealth of information about the subject disaster. The authors consider both natural and human factors that can trigger disasters, from shifting tectonic plates, which produce earthquakes or tsunamis, to mistakes that lead to nuclear meltdowns. Photos of historic and contemporary examples worldwide illustrate the events. The authors address aftermath and cleanup as well as research to predict and mitigate future occurrences. Guides for teachers and parents offer reading and discussion suggestions plus extension activities. The vocabulary and diagrams in Earthquakes are textbooklike, and the book includes the blanket recommendation "to bring a new earthquake kit to school every year." Other offerings in this set advise readers to think about disaster risk in their particular region. VERDICT Select titles from this solid series as needed to bolster collections.α(c) Copyright 2011.
