I have never experienced tsunamis and with this book, I just realized how dangerous they are. I have always been a lover of water. If I'm going to represent an element, it'll be water. If I'm going to choose to have a power, it'll be water- you get the idea how much I love water. Many says that water is only for defense not offense but they can also be dangerous. Take tsunamis for example.

Genre – Non-fiction
This book was written after the Tsunami that hit off the coast of Thailand in order to inform kids of not only natural disasters but why, how, where they occur. The book touches on earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, the ring of fire, landslides and avelances, and what people are doing in light of these disasters.

I think this book is beneficial for the reaso...more
This is a very fact-filled research guide about tsunamis and other natural disasters, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, mudslides, and avalanches. It doesn't cover hurricanes or typhoons, but those are covered in another research guide, "Twisters and Other Terrible Storms." Although our girls tend to love these Magic Tree House Research Guides, this one started off pretty slow and our girls got bored with it quickly. The section on plate tectonics even puts me to sleep!

I like this book very much,because it is a great informational book of natural disasters I have ever read.So all characters are believable.It tells about how horrible tsunami in 2004. Tsunami killed so many people and destroyed so many buildings.It also talks about what causes tsunamis. How and why happen earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides and avalanches. My favorite part is Chang Hen's urn....It has eight dragons with a ball in mouth and eight frogs open mouth sat beneath. If a ball fallen into...more
I think it was a great book because of the tips and advice to do when you are in any of the disastars. I may not like some of the storms, but they still are good books. Just like the twisters and other terrible storms, I really liked it. So I think it gets five stars. Here is why. Helpful tips what to do if caught in a storm or if you see a tsunami, and it is such a good book I couldn't stop reading. I read it the day I went to
Childrens hospital and read it on the way to Denver. It was awsome....more

The Magic Tree House Research Guides are conversational nonfiction that could be paired with books from the Magic Tree House series. These are great choices for kids looking for recreational reading. The books include an index, a list of further resources (including books, websites, and more), and tips for kids doing their own research.

Very cool and interesting, just not for kids with anxieties :) Sasha crossed off lots of vacation destinations after reading. No more wanting to visit Hawaii, California, or Yellowstone.
a good resource for children about tsunamis
Scientist believe Atlanta is real.
tsunamis can travel 500 miles per hour.
