Read to Read series, Level One

by Marion Dane Bauer
Illustrated by John Wallace

      Part of the Ready-to-Read series, this Level One book delves into what causes a flood. Beginning with rain and snow melts, the author follows water from mountain brooks and streams to a river. Of course, with too much water heading downstream a flood becomes a possibility.

Not only do we see what causes a flood but what has been done to prevent floods. Also included in the book are tips on what to do in case of a flood.

Here’s an excellent way of combining a read-it-yourself book with one that offers some interesting information about a situation young readers hear about from time to time on TV.
