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

NSTA Recommends - David Gillam, Begich Middle School

"You can read a number of books written about extreme weather events but what make this book stand out is that it combines information for early elementary age students about tornadoes with information about how to prepare for such an event. This is done without making such events scarier than they are. . . .The book includes prompts to encourage critical thinking after reading the text. The prompts provide a guide for discussing the content using Common Core keys and details." - NSTA Recommends
