The Big Wave by Pearl S. Buck

From NPR:

NPR's Jacki Lyden reads from Nobel prize-winning author Pearl S. Buck's children's book The Big Wave -- a story of a tsunami and its aftermath, set in Japan.

Lyden comments that "children are on the front line of fraility" and children know this. Resilience and the conquering of grief are themes of this novel.
