This important book looks at the kinds of disasters that may force people to leave their homes and move into shelters, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, fires, and earthquakes. It gives information about what to pack in disaster supply kits and how to evacuate home and communities. Author Bobbie Kalman recounts her experiences as a nine-year-old refugee who lived in a number of shelters, and suggests ways that organizations or individual families can help lessen the stresses of living in shelters.
