Flood!

With a brevity that conveys urgency, this entry in the It’s a Disaster! series describes the destructive powers of rising floodwaters: “The moving water knocks over trees. It carries away cars!” The message does indeed come across like a warning, with the text on each page placed against a caution-sign-yellow background. Meanwhile, additional factoids are presented in black and red boxes, like danger signs. Large, bright, and worrisome (but not too scary) photos depict the phenomenon as an international concern, showing waterlogged foreign countries and unspecified places that look like Anywhere, U.S.A. Fearful youngsters are given a glimmer of hope near the end, where recovery efforts are the focus, and actionable steps (listen to weather reports, go to higher ground, keep flashlights and canned food) are provided for those who live in flood-prone areas.
