Review: The Earth Dragon Awakers: The San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 by Laurence Yep

Synopsis: Over the years the earth has moved many times under San Francisco. But it has been thirty-eight years since the last strong earthquake. People have forgotten how bad it can be. But they will soon remember. Based on Actual Events of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and told from the alternating perspective of two young friends. (from the back of the book)

Review: This is a well-done fictional account of this events, combining facts with enough fiction to transport the reader into the story. While it is real, it is not too gruesome or dark for children - although I would not recommend for anyone under 6 or 7. It would be an excellent book for a classroom.
