Jenkins, Steve

Disasters by the Numbers: A Book of Infographics

(3) K-3 As he did with Animals by the Numbers, Jenkins uses his signature cut-paper collage combined with computer-generated graphics and informative text to make complex information accessible. Topics include both natural and human-made disasters, including volcanic eruptions, disease, drought, and famine. In many cases, Jenkins makes connections among them, explaining, for example, that natural disasters like drought are exacerbated by human activity (e.g., war), making famines more destructive. A glossary and bibliography are appended.
