Reviews

VOYA - Mary Ellen Snodgrass

"A superbly conceived and executed series, Heinemann’s introduction to disasters prepares readers for global news, as well as threats to home and self. This series is an excellent, sensibly priced choice for homeschooling, classrooms, and public libraries." - VOYA

NSTA Recommends - Jean Worsley, Retired Biology Teacher

"Readers will learn about the nature of this disaster beginning with the horror and chaos when the earthquake first struck and then all the way through to rescue and recovery. In this limited number of pages, not only is a natural disaster explored, but also how it was compounded due to inadequate infrastructure. . . .The information in this book is concise and highly recommended for young readers." - NSTA Recommends
