Best friends Adrienne, Keesha, Michael, and Tommy live on the same street in New Orleans. This fictional book documents how each child’s family responds to Hurricane Katrina. I think this is a good book to use to help support and encourage those who have suffered through natural disaster. However, my young children became a bit fearful of hurricanes and were concerned about possibly experiencing one.
