Booklist - 10/01/2021 Part of the True Book: Natural Disasters! series (6 titles), this title explores heat waves and droughts and the roles temperature and precipitation play in them, as well as the lasting effects they can have on the planet. True-or-false questions and large color photos will grab readers’ attention, with well-organized chapters going on to provide a good foundation on weather, climate, and pertinent processes such as the water cycle and global warming. Ways to stay safe during heat waves and droughts are also given, plus ways to prevent droughts and heat waves from increasingly affecting the planet. Labeled diagrams and maps give readers a bigger picture of the widespread effects, and two educational activities engage and encourage them to research further. A solid addition to nonfiction collections. - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
