Publisher's Description

New Orleans is known as a place where hurricanes happen . . . but that’s just one side of the story.
 
Children of New Orleans tell about their experiences of Hurricane Katrina through poignant and straightforward free verse in this fictional account of the storm. As natural and man-made disasters become commonplace, we increasingly need books like this one to help children contextualize and discuss difficult and often tragic events.
