It's a Disaster!

These fun books will captivate young readers. Though some photos are on the fuzzy side, they’re generally action-filled and will entice readers, while informative text boxes provide additional material. The books also present some content on how people can stay safe during these frightening weather conditions (for instance, advising going to higher ground during a flood). Exclamatory text and short, concise sentences (“Boom! A thunderstorm begins”) make these books accessible but still exciting.
