Synopsis

Inside Hurricanes by Mary Kay Carson

This title is suitable for children aged 9 to 12 years. What makes a hurricane? Where do they strike? What do scientists learn from flying planes through these dangerous storms? Stunning photographs, taken on the ground and from space, will help children understand this powerful, destructive force of nature, as will the incredible gatefolds. Inside Hurricanes includes dramatic first-person accounts from hurricane survivors and the latest science on how climate change will affect hurricanes, plus hands-on activities, maps, diagrams and more.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
