What an excellent premise - take the interactive Choose Your Own Adventure style books (which I was a huge fan of as a kid) and set them in real-life storm chasing scenarios. They are also very visually attractive. These are great for kids who love action and the option to choose the story's path. I desperately wanted more information to be included with the storylines. As a reader, I wanted to know more about why my decision was wise (or not). I think many readers would appreciate a bit of a bl [...]
An informational spin on the choose your own adventure structure, embedding the 2nd-person 'you' character (me) into factual scenarios of extreme weather. The choices were pretty benign, until I made a wrong one! (And ended up with a severed carotid artery from a flying shard of glass.) Elizabeth Raum did a good job of working in the real-life science work with the facts about each kind of storm. Quick pacing of the plot elements makes up for lack of development in the stock story. Just enough p [...]
In this book, you get to choose you own paths to try and survive all the storms! It is so awesome!
Maybe because it doesn't have the crispness and smell of new books
Can You Survive Storm Chasing? An Interactive Survival Adventure- Elizabeth Raum1. The twin text I selected for this book was Waiting Out the Storm by JoAnn Early Macken, copyright 2010.2. I paired Waiting Out the Storm with Can You Survive Storm Chasing? An Interactive Survival Adventure because both stories focused on different perspectives of storms. Can You Survive Storm Chasing? An Interactive Survival Adventure took the reader through an imaginary journey of storm chasing and making diffic [...]

I am split on this one. What a great concept! The reader appeal is obvious. I imagine the intent is to pull in reluctant readers with the dramatic format and trick them into learning science along the way. I have two problems with this. First, extreme weather is already fairly popular with reluctant readers, so I am not sure the format is necessary. Second, it seems likely that most readers of the target audience will read one adventure and then just skim through for the blunt and sometimes grue [...]
This is great!! It's a must for anyone who lives in areas where weather happens. The information is attainable and useful. The resources at the back of the book are good for kids and adults. It shows how even if your intentions are good, decisions can kill you and the people you want to help. From downed lines to gas mains, quick decisions can make you a victim and put even more people at risk. I can wait suggest this to my patrons.
A strong "Interactive Survival Adventure" informational text that will appeal to most readers because of the strange weather patterns this country has recently experienced. Clearly written with a variety of "You Choose" endings, this weather adventure will keep readers on their toes. This will be especially popular with boys who crave disaster titles.
Does anyone ever choose all the endings? How much of this type of book do you think is actually read? I think these books have great appeal, I just wonder if they are ever actually followed through to all the possible endings, or of curiosity dies after the reader does
Finally found a series that my son would read. This book was fun and engaging for the entire family. We took turns making the decisions and learned valuable does and don'ts along the way.
I love these books for reluctant readers. They are fun yet informative with the choose your own adventure twist. So glad we purchased them for our library.
This series is great! I survived the hurricane and the tornado, but died saving a cat in the flash flood. This actually will make you remember basic survival skills.
A choose your own adventure! Can you survive a tornado, hurricane and a flood? Here's your test!
