    A timely read

    In searching out a weather disaster related book for my grade four class, I was intrigued by this title in a series I'd never heard of before. In its brevity I was concerned it wouldn't have the proper impact that previous novels I'd read to them had but by the end most were riveted by the action and had some degree of empathy for the characters. Considering just about all my students this year were born the same year Katrina hit, I was surprised they could relate. They consider it to be fairly recent despite having taken place their whole lifetime ago. In retrospect I would rather give this chapter book to students for reading independently or in literature circles because it was relatively simple and a very quick read. I do think it's an effective piece for portraying the emotions when faced with tragedy. For that reason I will probably look at one or two other in this series and recommend it to kids who might be interested.
