Interested in tying books in with current events? The picture book Tsunami by Kimiko Kajikawa tells of one man’s attempt to warn his fellow villagers of a huge wave approaching.  Fourth and fifth grade classrooms enjoyed it, especially when I showed them the picture of a tsunami from Ben Hillman’s How Big Is It? (and while you’re at it, let them see the python on the escalator and the polar bear on the basketball court photos, too).
