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.
