Tummy Rumble Quake by Heather L. Beal is an educational and informative story that tells children how to handle issues in a calm and composed manner when there is an earthquake. I like the way in which the author explains earthquakes and what needs to be done to stay safe during an earthquake in a simple manner that can be understood by young readers. Children will know what has to be done to remain safe during an earthquake after reading this book. The illustrations are lively and they make the concept very clear to young readers. The questions and activities at the end of the story make it an excellent book for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Parents and grandparents can also read it out to their kids and grandkids at home and help them understand about earthquakes and what to do during one. The author makes science and learning interesting through this story, and what a good way to help children learn about earthquakes!

Tummy Rumble Quake is a recipient of the prestigious Mom’s Choice Award. The Mom’s Choice Awards® (MCA) evaluates products and services created for parents and educators and is globally recognized for establishing the benchmark of excellence in family-friendly media, products and services.
Get ready to drop, cover and hold on with Tummy Rumble Quake. In the follow on to Elephant Wind, author Heather Beal presents another excellent learning opportunity for all ages. The messages that accompany the wonderful illustrations are not only important, but also easy to understand. Children learn how to handle issues surrounding an earthquake in a non-frightening and empowering way. The positive messages in Tummy Rumble Quake allow children to participate in their own safety and convey the need for preparation. This book will probably become a most ‘often requested’ book for grandparents, parents, and children.

Second title in a successful juvenile safety series, "Tummy Rumble Quake" is a child's safety procedures manual for earthquakes drills. Written for children ages 4-8 by a military veteran with over 20 years of crisis management and operational planning experience, "Tummy Rumble Quake" sets up a children's classroom for adorable animal children students as a laboratory for teaching accepted standard safety procedures to practice during earthquakes. Along with a class full of eager students, Lily and Niko Rabbit learn to "drop, cover, and hold on," when caught indoors during an earthquake. The also learn similar safety steps to take if caught outside during an earthquake, or even in a car. Procedures are taught in simple statements such as "drop, cover, and hold on," and also in song. "If the room starts to rock, stop what you're doing and drop. Get under cover on the floor; hold on till it's safe once more." Bright colored, cheery illustrations show animal students practicing Great ShakeOut moves and safety procedures with their teacher, Ms Mandy. A calm, non-frightening tone and approach is emphasized throughout the story, which is helpful for kids in dealing with the scary issue of earthquake drills and procedures. At the end of "Tummy Rumble Quake" there are learning questions and activities from Lily and Niko Rabbit, plus safety resources at, www.train4safety.com/ready-tots/ to print out a certificate of training completion and more reference information about earthquake safety. Like the first title in this series, "Elephant Wind," "Tummy Rumble Quake" addresses its audience of readers ages 4-8 directly, with gentleness, warmth and caring.

Young rabbits, Lily and Niko are two inquisitive children who want to find out all about earthquakes, how they happen and what they should do in the event of one occurring.
Ms. Mandy teaches them about the plates under the sea and how they move together. She also explains about the noise that they make, like when their tummy rumbles, and that the children, if indoors, should drop, cover, hold.
Being in the UK, we don’t tend to get a lot of earthquakes that are sizeable to actually move items, and as far as I’m aware the highest magnitude ever recorded was 6.1, and this was out at sea and only felt in certain parts of the country. With this in mind, I don’t see this book being one that would become a household item, or read in schools here.
However, across the world lots of countries suffer from substantial earthquakes regularly. For children in those countries this book would be a great teaching method, helping young children to understand the importance of what to do when an earthquake hits.
The illustrations are both brightly coloured and full page size too, which really make the book stand out and very inviting.
The important information is written in a child friendly manner and will not scare a child, but help them learn a vital lesson that one day could just save their life. The story dosen’t only teach little ones what to do if they are indoors, but when out and in a car too.
This is a lovely little book. I don’t know what else is out there to help young children to understand what to do in an earthquake, but this book is short, to the point, looks good and is easy to understand.
