Well done!

I purchased this book for a very advanced reader in grade-school who has a passion for learning about extreme weather and natural disasters. Hurricanes, hail, rain, blizzards -- it's all here, along with a prognosis for the future. He adored this book, and it continues to stimulate his interest in the subject. The photographs and illustrations are extremely well done, and there is enough here to keep any adult interested. Highly recommended!

For the Child or the Childlike in your family. . .

It is a beautifully written and illustrated book which can be enjoyed by children, teenagers, and adults because it is totally well researched and attractive to look at.
