Tummy Rumble Quake by Heather L. Beal is an educational and informative story that tells children how to handle issues in a calm and composed manner when there is an earthquake. In the story, Ms Mandy goes to the bookcase and shakes it. She tells Lily that she is making sure the bookcase is securely attached to the wall before The Great ShakeOut. Niko wants to know what a Great ShakeOut is. Dylan says everyone practices for earthquakes and his brother’s class had done it last year. Ms Mandy explains to Niko and Lily what an earthquake is, and how and why it happens. She also tells them the three things they should do when there is an earthquake. So children, are you ready to learn about earthquakes?
I like the way in which the author explains earthquakes and what needs to be done to stay safe during an earthquake in a simple manner that can be understood by young readers. Children will know what has to be done to remain safe during an earthquake after reading this book. The illustrations are lively and they make the concept very clear to young readers. The questions and activities at the end of the story make it an excellent book for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Parents and grandparents can also read it out to their kids and grandkids at home and help them understand about earthquakes and what to do during one. The author makes science and learning interesting through this story, and what a good way to help children learn about earthquakes!
