Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
It is a warm summer day when your bed begins to shake. Suddenly books are flying across your bedroom, and glass shatters across the floor. You are in the middle of an earthquake! What should you do if an earthquake strikes? What is the best way to deal with this natural phenomenon? Earthquakes are fairly common; several hundred earthquakes occur across the world everyday. If you find yourself at the center of an earthquake, you will have to deal with flying objects, crumbling buildings, and other perils. But the important thing is to stay aware and to act calmly. This book provides guidance for what to do if you are in different locations when an earthquake strikes: a sturdy building, an old building, or on a bridge. There is also helpful advice about how to act if you are trapped under debris, caught in the middle of a fire, or caught in a tsunami. The author also discusses perils such as landslides and spilled chemicals. Readers will be drawn into this concise, well written book about surviving an earthquake; the photographs add suspense and excitement to the text. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.
