Hurricanes: Earth’s Mightiest Storms
Cover art of childrens nonfiction book Hurricanes Earth’s Mightiest Storms
Hurricanes: Earth’s Mightiest Storms is an excellent children's nonfiction book about hurricanes that will appeal to nine- to fourteen-year-olds. Spectacular black & white and color photographs, maps, satellite images, and weather diagrams accompany the text by Patricia Lauber. The terrible impact of hurricanes is introduced in the first chapter, a dramatic account of the hurricane of 1938 and the extensive damage it caused. Having piqued her reader’s interest, Lauber goes on to discuss the making of a hurricane, the naming of hurricanes, the widespread damage caused by high winds, and what scientists think about future storms. The book is 64-pages and includes an index and a recommended reading list. If you are looking for a good book about the science, history, and future of hurricanes, I recommend Hurricanes: Earth’s Mightiest Storms. (Scholastic, 1996. ISBN: 0590474065)
