Product Description

Shudder at the might of fearsome earthquakes in a book of startling true-life stories, showing the impact of earthquakes on children’s lives from 1920s Japan to modern-day Haiti. Featuring real-life biographies that tug readers into the narrative and vividly show the human cost of natural disasters, the book also uses maps, photos, quotes and background information to give a complete picture of events. As well as learning about some of the most destructive quakes ever, readers will learn how relief organisations such as the Red Cross help to alleviate suffering and rebuild striken areas. Statistics panels show figures such as houses damaged, lives lost and areas affected, allowing children to compare different earthquakes in history.
