Ready, Set... WAIT! What Animals Do Before a Hurricane by Patti R. Zelch & Illustrated by Connie McLennan

ISBN: 9781607180722
 Hardcover $16.95
About the book: 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.

Review: What do animals do when a hurricane is coming? That is what this book discusses. It talks about people and how they get prepared as well as many animals in and out of the ocean.

This book is best for younger children. Although, there is a lot of informative information that would be helpful to adults even at the end of the story.
I recommend this book for younger children. It is a great book that describes hurricanes in a "not so scary" way.
