Reference Sunday: Tsunami: Helping Each Other by Ann Morris & Heidi Larson

It has been 5 years since a Tsunami destroyed parts of Asia. It happened the day after Christmas 2004. There are many books that have been written since the disaster but none so poignant as Tsunami: Helping Each Other is. This is a great book for children because it is told very visually with its many photographs. It also focuses on the children who were affected by the tragedy. The two boys it highlights, Chaiya & Chaipreak, were just 8 & 12 years old at the time. They are beautiful children who have suffered a great sadness. The book not only tells children what Tsunami's are but how they can change the lives of anyone.
