We were fascinated by the famous floods throughout the world and how humans have learned how to deal with them. My 7 year old loved the pictures and I appreciate that the book will be suitable for older readers as well as it was written with a higher level vocabulary. It’s a book that can be adapted for all ages.
This is a beautifully illustrated book about floods. In addition to the gorgeous pictures, there is information about different floods, what causes them, how to prevent them, and what we can do after a flood. It defines some of the terms about floods. This will be a great addition to different science units.
The floods shocked yet fascinated my children, and the images really capture the devastation a flood can wreak. This book can appeal to older and younger children because more advanced vocabulary was explained and sometimes even illustrated so that younger kids can understand their meanings. I liked that the book took a global approach and covered a famous flood on each continent (except for Antarctica, of course). I also appreciated the sections at the end that covered methods we use to prevent or temper floods and how we can be prepared in the event of a flood so that the children don’t feel entirely vulnerable.
From coastal areas to inner cities, overﬂowing waters can wreak havoc on all who experience them. Despite the hardships that come from ﬂoods, there is much to learn from these great outbreaks of water. Come along and explore some of the world’s most famous ﬂoods, the impact they have had on land and people, and the many ways they still inﬂuence our lives today.
