Teach Kids About Hurricanes with a Free eBook

Saturday, August 27, 2011 Posted by Dina N

My kids and I are big fans of Sylvan Dell Publishing children's books. For a limited time, they are offering a free ebook on their website to help parents and educators teach children about hurricanes. Ready, Set…WAIT! deals with what coastal animals do before a storm hits. I read it today and I will be sharing it with my family over the weekend. The book is beautifully illustrated and - as all Sylvan Dell Publishing books I've read - it has an educational section in the back and tons of teaching activities, quizzes, and related websites on book’s homepage.

Book Description
Hurricane . . . just the word brings to mind the power of these natural disasters. Humans watch the news and know of impending arrival. We board up windows and gather supplies. We might huddle in our homes or go inland. Then we wait for the storm to arrive. But what do wild animals do? Do they know when a storm is coming? If so, how do they prepare? This book explains how nine animals sense, react, and prepare for a hurricane. Based on research or observations, the brief portraits are explained in simple, poetic language for children of all ages.
