Description

We often get asked about books to support the ‘Awesome Earth’ or ‘Natural Disasters’ topics for KS2 and we think we may have just found the perfect one. The introduction’s warning—“every so often, the planet reminds us who’s boss”—rings out again at the conclusion, which explains how climate change could amplify each of these terrible and fascinating natural events''. We often get asked about books to support the 'Awesome Earth' or 'Natural Disasters' topics for KS2 and we think we may have just found the perfect one.

Featuring clear information about a comprehensive range of events such as tsunamis, avalanches, earthquakes and volcanoes (grouped under geological disasters), and tornadoes, blizzards, wildfires and tropical cyclones (meteorological disasters), this colourful and fascinating guide is a real eye-opener. It’s important to understand how and why natural disasters happen, and what they leave behind – and, not least, how they affect some of the poorest people on the planet. is one of those books that perfectly balances both the needs of the child, and the wants of the adult; it’s fun, educational and equally entertaining to people big and small''.We chose this book for a Literary Leaf as it explores the scientific and geographical background of the subject of natural disasters in a format which is accessible for children and befitting of the subject. This is a used book - there is no escaping the fact it has been read by someone else and it will show signs of wear and previous use. is one of those books that perfectly balances both the needs of the child, and the wants of the adult; it’s fun, educational and equally entertaining to people big and small. Each section tackles a different type of event, and mixes the science behind the event with pages devoted to maps and diagrams, as well as insets that cover related factoids.

New Edition: Introduction to Earth Sciences (2nd Edition)Geophysics is concerned with the physical processes and properties of the Earth and its surrounding environment, and with the use of quantitative methods for their analysis. But in others, the political and economic reverberations of earthquake disasters have presented opportunities for renewal. Informative, accessible illustrations by Sophie Williams make this so much more than your standard geography book.No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. Tectonics rip open the earth, vast waves sweep away coastal towns, magma spews from volcanoes and hurricanes lay waste to entire countries.

Sometimes I would need to add in extra illustrations or resize current ones to fit the layout of the page properly. And there’s more – meteorological disasters – cyclones, tornadoes, blizzards and hailstorms, wildfires and the impact of climate change. Earthquakes are explained as a process, with examples of extreme events, details of measuring devices, the retelling of related myths from around the world and a map of the world’s tectonic plates. This children’s book is ideal for: extended home learning projects and wider reading for children aged 7-12. People look down on stuff like geography and meteorology, and not only because they’re standing on one and getting soaked by the other.Each event is explained in a way that is easy to understand for junior children without compromising on presenting the underlying scientific facts. Yet, even in the 21st century, great earthquakes are still essentially 'acts of God', striking with much less warning than volcanoes, floods, hurricanes and even tornadoes and tsunamis. Featuring clear information about a comprehensive range of events, this colourful and fascinating guide is a real eye-opener.

SOPHIE: It was a definitely a team effort, I would receive a document of text for each section of the book and each important piece of information would be broken down into an illustration. Those children who start reading are going to find themselves engrossed in the fault-patterns in tectonic plates, all laid out by Williams’ deliberately naïve and colourful illustrations that make each and every page larger-than-life.The _ga cookie, installed by Google Analytics, calculates visitor, session and campaign data and also keeps track of site usage for the site's analytics report. A feature of each chapter that my son and I particularly enjoyed reading was the advice in the 'What to do in a . The grid backgrounds on many of the explanation pages are a neat way to not only display the information in clear blocks but also to show pupils how to design their posts and double-page spreads in exercise books. We look at why these things happen, what the impacts are and what to do if you have the misfortune to get caught in one! Through the mix of illustrated characters, landscapes and scientific diagrams I think we got the balance just right.
