You've decided to prepare for earthquakes, but it can be a little overwhelming - where do you start? "Sofie and Daniel Get Ready for Earthquakes" uses the art of storytelling to make getting ready easier, more effective, and more fun for children and parents. This book has the most recent information, from trusted sources, all together, in one place. The basics can be done in one day.

Reviewed by earthquake and tsunami experts, the 40 page book includes a full-color, charmingly illustrated story, written for parents to read to their young children. It helps kids understand earthquakes, shows kids and parents how to 'drop, cover, and hold on' properly, and helps kids feel less afraid when earthquakes happen. Parents and kids have all the information, lists, and the fill-in-the-blank forms they need to prepare for earthquakes together.

One parent said this about the book: "The story held my four year old's attention. It's funny and the rest of the pages are these great cut-out emergency plan forms, emergency kit lists, and the like. As soon as we finished reading, my son asked if he could make his own earthquake emergency kit."

About the Author

Earthquakes are pretty normal for children's book author Lin Glen. She even has a few favorites. Born near San Francisco, she and her husband have made their home on the far northern coast of California, in one of the most seismically-active parts of the country.

In her writing career, Lin uses her preschool and health education teaching skills to write books for young children and their families that entertain, empower, and educate. Her first book, "Sofie and Daniel Get Ready for Earthquakes", combines a classic story book with basic earthquake information and simple tools that parents and kids can use to prepare for earthquakes together.

Kids pay attention to details. If you look closely, you might notice that the food on the breakfast table is healthy and everyone's buckled up properly in the van - health education at work. She almost drove her illustrator crazy when she had to take the time to consult state experts to make sure the illustrations showed Sofie and Daniel properly in the "drop, cover, and hold on" scenes. The same care is taken to make sure all recommendations and resources only come from trusted scientific and government sources.

Lin is a member of the Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, has a Master's Degree in Education with a minor in Journalism, is a member of the Redwood Coast Tsunami Work Group, and volunteers with her town's CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) and her neighborhood Emergency Preparedness groups.
