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.

What do you think of when you hear the word "earthquake"? Is it images of rubble in the streets of California? Perhaps it's cracked buildings and broken concrete in Japan? No matter what your immediate thought, the truth is clear: earthquakes are serious. Whether it's learning about how they are formed or how to keep homes from being built in a high-risk earthquake area, young readers will be enthralled with Earthquakes.
