Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Troisi
This research-based title brings the reader up-close-and-personal with its comprehensive coverage of tsunamis in five brief but concise chapters. The reader will be entranced as the white, foamy wall of water approaches and engulfs the entire coastline during the unforgettable Asian tragedy of 2004. Ensuing chapters define a tsunami, recount past harbor waves, share world provisions for rescue and aid, and describe scientist's efforts to create warning systems. Full-color and historical photographs and diagrams complement the text. Maps enhance the impact of the deadly forces throughout the world. Interesting factoids, which relate that animals may detect earth vibrations before humans and display a soaring tsunami wave, offer a sense of reality to the magnitude. A two-page epilogue reviews facts and safety measures. Adding to the value of the book is a table of contents, a glossary, a bibliography, an index, Internet sites, and useful addresses for additional information. Science, math, social studies, and geography content are discovered in this easy-to-read, 64-page book about a current events topic. Part of the "High Five Reading" series.
