I Survived: Hurricane Katrina
Written by Lauren Tarshis
Ages: 8 - 12
Grade level: 3 – 7
I read this book a while ago and remembered it as I watched Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Barry and his family survived Katrina in 2005. Their story’s fictional, but so many of their experiences have been repeated recently. Barry’s family tried to evacuate but were forced to return home. They watched flood waters approach and found themselves on the roof, hoping for rescue. Read and discover how they survived, and know that those in Texas, the Caribbean, and Florida will too.
Whenever I read or write, I find a comfy chair with a great view. I get my favorite drink, stretch out, and let the words take me away.
