Children's Literature - Sarah Maury Swan
Never underestimate the power of rushing water. It can sweep a car off the road or uproot a tree. Water is vital to the survival of all living things on this planet, but this book points out the dangers it can present also. Monsoons occur naturally in many parts of the globe, so the inhabitants of those areas learn to cope with the rain during this season. They depend on the water the monsoon delivers to grow their crops and replenish their water supplies; still the people are wary of the amount of water that sends rivers and lakes out of their channels to flood the adjacent land. This book describes the life of a flood and what causes monsoon winds to bring in summer water or winter dryness. It also has information on how to prepare for a flood and photos of historic floods, although there seems to be no rhyme or reason to as to the order in which the floods are presented. Presented as Guided Reading Level Q, the book gives a good overview and can lead the reader to explore any of the areas mentioned. It would be a better resource if it had a more comprehensive bibliography than just a few websites. Reviewer: Sarah Maury Swan
