Earthquakes by Franklyn M. Branley
Read and find out about one of nature\'s most mysterious forces—the earthquake. Some earthquakes are so small that you don\'t even feel them, while others can make even big buildings shake! Learn why earthquakes happen, where they are most likely to occur, and what to do if one happens near you.
The simple, easy-to-read narrative describes the causes and effects of earthquakes (including a tsunami) and safety measures to be taken during one. New additions include a page of earthquake facts, a list of the 10 most destructive (as determined by the number of fatalities), and a Web site.Some of the paintings feature children demonstrating wave-related activities and earthquake safety procedures, but the most effective pictures are those that show the unseen and unseeable, such as cross-sections of mountains, volcanoes, and faults in the earth\'s moving crust. One double-page spread concerns a 1939 earthquake off the Chilean coast that resulted in a tsunami.
