Free kindle Nature Attacks! (I Survived True Stories #2) By Lauren Tarshis –

There seems to be something compelling about hearing disaster stories Especially if they happen to someone else And to be honest, I m no different in that regard When I think about what it is that draws me to these stories I come up with three reasons it makes me happy to be living my own life, I admire the determination and courage that often shines through in such stories not that everyone behaves that way , and I m looking for ideas for how I could survive if such a thing ever happened to me.Young readers aren t any different than older readers when it comes to disaster stories And true disaster stories are especially appealing for some readers This nonfiction companion to Tarshis s historical fiction series I Survived, takes a look at real disasters that have occurred that involved children The stories in this second volume of the True Stories series looks at a shark attack, a jellyfish accident, a volcanic eruption and a wildfire Tarshis briefly shares each story after which she includes some interesting back matter including photographs, historical living, statistics when available , her sources, and related topics This book is bound to send students looking for other such stories and information about these topics and stories As a librarian, I especially appreciated her explaining about the research she does before writing each story.
