This week Houston, Texas is on everyone's mind as it is being ravaged by floods from Hurricane Harvey. Natural disasters can be difficult to explain to children. This storm is an amazing event of nature while also a tragedy. It is important for kids to understand nature, fear it when appropriate, not let the fear overtake them, but be aware of how incredible the world is. A great book to help your children understand all this is this month's Editor's Pick -- Edward Alan Kurtz: Hurricanes. It is a fascinating read for children. It gets granular in the details of how they form, where, times of the year, history, safety issues, and even into fascinating facts like a large hurricane can have the same energy of ten atomic bombs and one is on Jupiter now that is the size of earth and is over three hundred years old. In a few moments, with this book - what is on the news makes sense, their world will make more sense, and they will be empowered to put this week's news in context though an exciting read at their level.
