From the Series Disaster Zone

In Wildfires, early fluent readers learn about the conditions that lead to and result from catastrophic wildfires. Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully leveled text engage young readers as they learn about the deadliest wildfires and what they can do to prevent and prepare for these disasters.

Infographics illustrate key concepts, and an activity offers kids an opportunity to extend discovery. Children can learn more about wildfires using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. Wildfires also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, a glossary, and an index.

Series Made Simple

Simple explanations are paired with relevant illustrations to bolster confidence in emerging researchers. In addition to basic facts about the causes and effects of natural disasters, each volume includes a map where they are most likely to occur, plus several historic or contemporary examples. Small diagrams and text boxes help explain terms such as haboob. A hands-on activity, such as melting ice without changing the temperature, precedes the back matter. The exception is Wildfires, which suggests additional Internet research as the accompanying activity. VERDICT Good choices to introduce primary researchers to components of nonfiction.
