Official Summary: “Lily and Niko Rabbit’s childcare class learns about the Great ShakeOut™ and about earthquakes. They learn what causes earthquakes and how an earthquake feels like shaking and sounds like a really loud tummy rumble. They practice the three safety steps of drop, cover, and hold on. At the end of the day they know how to be safe during an earthquake.
Reading this book is a great way for parents, childcare providers, and caregivers, to talk to toddlers and preschool children about earthquake safety in a non-frightening way. Children can easily relate with these characters and their story gives children the tools and information they need to help stay safe and be prepared should an earthquake happen.” – Goodreads

Review: The questions/activities at the end was a nice touch, just something else to help children remember. I don’t know whether it was just me or not but it came across as a bit dry. I know it a very serious topic, they need to learn what to do in the event of an earthquake. But at the same time, you have to keep children’s attention in order for them to absorb the information. Overall the idea is a noble one, it goal is to save lives if an event ever happened. So good job for that.
