Product Description

Earthquakes, floods, fires, tornadoes, hurricanes-pretty scary words,  especially for anyone who lives in a place that has experienced any of   these events. In particular, a child who has survived a natural disaster,  or seen one on television, may have trouble falling asleep, have   nightmares, or start worrying too much. This book will help. I’ll Know   What to Do looks at each natural disaster separately. First it gives the   facts: What causes an earthquake? Can we predict a tornado? Why are mud   slides dangerous? How are fires tracked? Then it provides important tips   on prevention, safety, and what to do in case disaster does strike.  Perhaps most important, though, the book explores the feelings that often   emerge in the aftermath, and offers useful techniques to help young people work through them. This is the first book of its kind-a manual for helping kids understand and cope with their feelings and reactions to these   frightening events.
