"Accessible text explains how rain can cause overflow in rivers and lakes and, as a result, flood basements and houses. The text exudes a gentle tone. The abstract style of some illustrations complements the discussion of saturated ground, storm surge, flash floods, and flood plains. A few insets add contrasting information, such as how elephants feel a coming tsunami through their feet. Even the annual floods of the Nile are mentioned, with visual reference to ancient Egyptian art-an indication of the wide range of content included. A flood plan and a list of emergency supplies are great additions." - School Library Journal
