Omaha Public Schools - Joan Lee

"This is one of six books from the Children’s True Stories: Natural Disasters series. Very informative. It covers four hurricanes from 1900 in Galveston, TX, Darwin, Australia 1974, New Orleans, Louisiana, 2005 to 2007 in Bangladesh. Each chapter includes a child’s point of view concerning a hurricane, but also how it affected others, actual damage numbers and who or what organizations helped out. This book includes an introduction – general information about hurricanes, a glossary, a bibliography or more information including books and websites, a map of the hurricanes listed, and an index. It is very well laid out. –Joan Lee, Belvedere School Omaha Public Schools 2/2/2013" - Omaha Public Schools

Children's Literature Comprehensive Database - Kristi Bernard, Children's Literature

"Raum has done an excellent job of teaching young readers what happens before, during and after a devastating hurricane. Actual photos show homes ripped to pieces, cars piled up and hurricanes in action. Entire communities pull together to start the cleanup. The back of the book has maps, a glossary and many resources to help young readers, teachers and parents learn more about hurricanes and how to keep safe." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
