Description

In any given year, there may be between 200-300 large-scale geological or meteorological disasters on earth – and they’re becoming more frequent because of climate change.

People look down on stuff like geography and meteorology, and not only because they’re standing on one and getting soaked by the other. 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. If the idea of giving a child a book on disasters feels in some way wrong, it’s also filled with some very useful information, written with humour by Jacobs.

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.Tom Tolkien is an experienced teacher and educational consultant who taught for 20 years in primary and secondary schools, including Woodleigh School in North Yorkshire, where he was Head of English and ran a 4000 book prep school library for pupils aged 3-13.

This was my first non-fiction publication so it was really exciting to see that my work could be used in such an informative way. Each event is explained in a way that is easy to understand for junior children without compromising on presenting the underlying scientific facts.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''.
