5.0 out of 5 stars Eyewitness Readers Volcanoes and other Natural Disasters 5 Oct. 2000
By "homsey10" - Published on
This reader is jam-packed with disaster stories and the science and geography that caused the event. My children love real stories above those that are made up. More school subjects are covered and History has become a bit more interesting. What more can I say but WOW!

A Kid's Review - Published on
Format:School & Library Binding
Quentin Volcanos & other Natural Disasters

This book is called Volcanoes & Other Natural Disasters. This is an excellent book. It tells us about terrible events like,bushfires,and volcanoes.

There's volcanoes in Pompeii,Italy and Martinique,Caribbean. There's floods in the Yellow River of China. Earthquaks in San Francisco,California, and Libson,Portugal. Hurricanes in Long Island,New York. Avalanches in Yungay,Peru. Last,bushfires in Southern Australia.

They are all very dangerous events. They either kill,injure,or leave millions of people homeless. It tells us how to prevent them. Did you know that,children in Japan and California sleep flashlights next to their beds to save them in case of an earthquake?
This is an excellent book. I hope you read this book. If you want to be a weather reporter or a scientist,read this non-fiction book.

My son seemed to enjoy this book. I thought it was a little short for the price. I don't thiink I would purchase another if there is a series.
4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, but not suitable for all children 18 May 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My son and I enjoyed this book, and the reading level was right. But parents with younger or more sensitive kids should know that some of the descriptions in the book are excessively graphic and even fairly disturbing. They get into the details of how certain events kill people, and I found myself skipping a number of sentences to spare both myself and my son of something we don't really want to be thinking about.

Aside from that, the illustrations are generous (and not very upsetting), and the stories are well picked. Note that most of the events are not earthquakes. Events include avalanches, fires and volcanoes as well.
