"Teachers building science curricula may want the entire set to make comparisons and connections among volumes, although each book stands alone for collections needing to supplement only specific subject areas."--School Library Journal
"The already interesting topic of natural disasters becomes even more fascinating in this made-for-teaching series. All titles would be a great fit for libraries or classrooms."--School Library Connection
