Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
AGERANGE: Ages 5 to 9.

This attractive and colorful nonfiction text is one of six titles in a series of "Pull Ahead" Lerner books about the forces of nature. This text provides detailed factual information about hurricanes, as well as photographic images of the fierce storms and the damage they can cause. Readers will learn where most hurricanes start, how people get ready for them, and when most hurricanes occur. The wonderful captioned photographs that are on each page aid reading comprehension while stimulating interest in the subject. Important subject-specific vocabulary words such as eye and storm surge are highlighted in the text and included in a glossary at the back of the book. Other significant features that make the information in this book easily accessible for readers include a table of contents, an index, a list of suggestions for relevant websites and readings, and a chart of additional facts about hurricanes. Children will enjoy reading and learning from this text, and teachers will welcome this basic nonfiction text as part of their classroom library because it supports national curriculum standards related to the natural sciences and environments.
