Themes: Hi-Lo, headlines, nonfiction, disasters, world events. Even expert mountain climbers face danger and risk. Some of these risks result from human negligence; others are due to the weather or other uncontrollable factors.

This series of nonfiction readers will grab a student's interest from the very first page! Designed with struggling readers in mind, these riveting 92-page books offer short chapters on significant disasters. Each chapter is its own mini-book, which includes a timeline, key terms, and interesting facts. Fascinating black and white photographs keep the pages turning. A bibliography encourages further topical reading.
