Booklist - Angela Leeper

"Top 10 Disaster Science Series for Youth! In this series, clear text, along with large photos and a sophisticated design, conveys how and where natural disasters are likely to form. Although the books describe the extreme weather as dangerous, they also refrain from being alarmist by concentrating instead on emergency preparedness and staying safe." - Booklist

"...clearly presents what each one of these natural disasters is, how it is created, and then provides simple advice for being prepared. The tone of the text makes sure not to alarm young readers. . . .This is a solid and informative series for primary readers." - School Library Connection
