This reading material was created to raise children’s awareness about disaster prevention and disaster risk reduction and develop their ability to judge and act. The material contains stories of children who experienced the disaster as well as questions about what to do in an emergency that will lead children to develop their independence. It consists of three separate volumes, one for 1st to 3rd year elementary school students, one for 4th to 6th year elementary school students, and the third for junior high school students, so as to deepen their understanding according to their developmental stage.
