It was interesting to see the real stories of kids who survived natural disasters. The book is full of facts and illustrations about each event, and even information on how to survive some of the disasters. I recommend this to anybody that would like to learn more about this topic.

This book is about the disasters that have accually happend. It gives more detail about what happend to each story than the ones in other books that are not I survived books. It is based on real people and in a real person explaining in what happend, what that person did,(ect.). I mean like this is the type of book for research, or projects.
