Teen Fiction PRATCHE
Summary: 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. Animals Include: fish, dolphins, sharks, lobsters, manatees, birds, crocodiles, butterflies, and rabbits. The For Creative Minds educational section includes: Natural DisastersÂ¿What is a Hurricane?, WhatÂ¿s in a Name? & Where in the World? (Map Activity), WhatÂ¿s in a Number? & What Can the Storm Do?, Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale, and Preparing for the Storm. Additional teaching activities and interactive quizzes are available for free on the Sylvan Dell Publishing website.
