    One thought on “The Japanese Tsunami, 2011”

    1. I read "I survived Japanese tsunami." This was better than I thought it would be. It's very short and the writing is nothing special, but it did give a good idea of what it would be like to experience an earthquake and tsunami, and it does give good historical details about this particular disaster.While on their vacation, Japan is hit with the strongest earthquake and tsunami it has ever seen, and Ben is separated from his family by the furious and destructive wave that knocks over buildings an [...]

    2. My 2nd grader LOVES this series, and I have to admit I do too. Tarshis provides a wonderfully sensitive portrayal of historical events that may not be widely discussed among families. Her books have taught my son and I both a lot about these disasters and prompted great conversations about tragedy, loss, and death of loved ones. Highly recommended for young grade schoolers!

Suddenly, Japan is hit with the strongest earthquake and tsunami it has ever seen, and Ben is separated from his family by the furious and destructive [...]

    4. This book, I Survived: The Japanese Tsunami, 2011, is a book about Ben and Harry from California taking a trip to their uncle’s house in Shogahama, Japan, only to be stuck in one of the most epic tsunamis of all time.I really liked this book.

    6. “I Survived the Japanese Tsunami,” by Lauren Tarshis, is an astonishing story about a boy named Ben who survived the 2011 tsunami. An earthquake created the tsunami that separated Ben from his family. Like in most of the books in the “I Survived” series, Ben’s dad died a few months before the tsunami. That didn’t stop him from surviving the great wave. Ben has a cat named Nya that helps him not feel alone.

    7. I like this series. It takes true events and makes them interesting. The factual information is correct. It's just the dialogue and character that are invented.

I love that my students enjoy these books.In this book the main character is visiting family in Japan. He gets separated from them in the tsu [...]

    16. This reading is a 3rd grade school assignment for my 10-year-old son. So, I decided to read it myself in order to follow his later work.I recommend this reading pretty much, most in case of having kids around the age when teaching them about reading, discussing and other activities around enjoying books.The book has good elements to work:1) Even though the story is fiction, it is base in the real fact of the last earthquake and tsunami in Sogohama in 2011. So, to discuss about the book is a good [...]

    21. Compelling as usual. I was surprised that for this I Survived story, we did not get to witness it from the perspective of someone from Japan, and instead from a boy who was visiting Japan. I suppose I shouldn't have been as surprised as I was that the main character isn't from Japan, but whatever, there we are.This book came out in late August and I just finished it, in mid-November, about a week after a typhoon barreled through the Philippines and destroyed Tacloban, killing thousands of people [...]

    22. This is a high interest series, and Tarshis is successful once again in creating a page turner. I had two reactions to the book. First- the survivor is an American boy of Japanese-American heritage. He is visiting his uncle with his mother and brother. I really would have preferred a Japanese protagonist. Over 15.000 people died in the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami just three years ago and thousands are still missing. The magnitude of this disaster deserves all respect, and I personally felt it [...]
