Preparing for Disasters

“...text is beautifully illustrated with bright, coloured photographs... The vocabulary is appropriate for the early intermediate level student. The lyrical style of writing is both appealing and informative. These texts should provide many subjects for classroom and home discussion, as well as being a source of safety information and an educational guide. They should prove to be a useful addition to an Elementary School Library collection.” —Resource Links, 03/10
