What did you like about the book:  The Natural Disasters series is great for early readers interested in nonfiction text.  Flood! is one of three in the series – Volcano! and  Earthquake! are the other two.  ‘All living things need water to survive.  But when there is too much rain, a flood can happen.  Learn how floods form and how we try to avoid them.’  A fact-filled text and simple colorful illustrations make this great for those learning to read and keen to gain knowledge about our earth.  The back pages contain interesting facts about floods.
