With six chapters focusing on Hurricane Harvey's beginning all the way to its continuing aftermath, this slim volume is a perfect starting point for young readers looking to learn more about hurricanes and about the damage this particular hurricane brought upon Texas, focusing especially on Harris County. Young readers will be introduced to the different wind categories, storm surges, hurricane eyewalls, and the hurricane naming system. A large section of the book focuses not only on the perils of flooding itself but also on the dangers lurking within the floodwaters and why Houston in particular is so prone to floods. The effects felt by people as well as animals are detailed, with each page containing many photographs from the disaster. Additional information summarizes Hurricanes Irma and Maria, which formed soon after Hurricane Harvey. Tips for staying safe during a hurricane, a glossary, notes, suggestions for further reading, and an index follow the text. A great start for young readers wanting to learn about hurricanes.
