Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6 Year Old Loves This My 6 year loves natural disasters and this entire series of books was exactly what I was looking for (Sinkholes and Tsunamis are her favorite). The content is mature enough to keep her interest (she likes the scary stories about people surviving/not surviving), it explains the causes really well -- without dumbing it down too much (as some kid books like to do). The reading level is just right for her too. Thanks!
