Witness the devastation caused by tsunamis in a book of startling true-life stories, showing the impact of these giant waves on children’s lives from 1940s Hawaii to Japan in 2011. 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 tsunamis 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 tsunamis in history.
