Whether it's the earthquakes shaking southern California or hurricanes whipping up and down the East Coast, natural disasters demand our attention, whether we like it or not -- and for good reason. Within a single moment, they can change our lives, without much effort. But why do these strange phenomena occur? Can they be predicted? Young readers will be intrigued by Natural Disasters as they discover for themselves how likely Earth is to be hit by an asteroid, how earthquakes are detected, and how plagues are created. Written in a simple prose style coupled with stunning photographs, this series accomplishes its purpose of answering the multitude of questions that fill children's heads when they hear about natural disasters.For the past few years, Hollywood has been bombarding our theaters with movies about asteroids: asteroids that hit New York and asteroids that will destroy Earth. Young readers will learn why asteroids sometimes end up on Earth, and what, if anything, can be done to prevent them. No matter what the questions, they're sure to be answered in Asteroid Strikes.
