We often get asked about books to support the ‘Awesome Earth’ or ‘Natural Disasters’ topics for KS2 and we think we may have just found the perfect one. -- Books for Topics

Featuring clear information about a comprehensive range of events, this colourful and fascinating guide is a real eye-opener. -- BookTrust

An atlas of the most extreme meteorological and geological disasters that nature has to offer!

We humans take our domination of the planet for granted, but sometimes nature reminds us that this is an illusion. Tectonics rip open the earth, vast waves sweep away coastal towns, magma spews from volcanoes and hurricanes lay waste to entire countries.

This book explores nature at its most destructive. Clear, coherent explanations break down the science behind phenomena including hurricanes, tornadoes, avalanches, earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes, alongside fascinating facts about the biggest and the worst. Informative, accessible illustrations by Sophie Williams make this so much more than your standard geography book.

'Get Kids Into Books - I really liked the clear, uncluttered layout. The explanations are easy to understand and there’s lots of really interesting information. A feature of each chapter that my son and I particularly enjoyed reading was the advice in the ‘What to do in a …’ section. Earth Shattering Events expertly conveys the sheer power and destructive force of nature. It’s an eye-opening book and reminds us of our fragility. Rating: ' - Get Kids Into Books
