9780062327758: Hurricane Watch (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 2)

Winds whip. Waves crash. Rain pours down. A superstorm moves across the ocean and gets closer and closer to land. Hurricane watch! Read and find out how hurricanes form, how scientists track the storms, and what you can do to keep yourself safe if one strikes. With colorful illustrations from Taia Morley and engaging text from Melissa Stewart, Hurricane Watch is a look into a powerful natural disaster.

Perfect for budding meteorologists, Hurricane Watch is bursting with fascinating facts paired with engaging visuals and diagrams. This picture book also includes a Find Out More section with an activity on air pressure, web research prompts, and a glossary of storm and weather vocabulary. Both text and artwork were vetted by Dr. William J. Brennan of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for accuracy.

This is a Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and correlates to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Next Generation Science Standards.

About the Author:

Melissa Stewart is the award-winning author of more than 150 science and nature books for young readers, most recently Feathers: Not Just for Flying, a Junior Library Guild selection. While gathering information for her books, Melissa has hiked in tropical rainforests, gone on safari in Africa, and swum with sea lions in the Galápagos Islands. She lives in Boston, Massachusetts.



Taia Morley has worked as a toy and game designer for several toy companies and is also an illustrator whose work appears in books and magazines and on packaging. She even illustrated the surface of the St. Paul Public Library Bookmobile. When she isn't working, she might be riding a bike, trying to hit a tennis ball, or napping. This is her first book in the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series. She is married to a wonderful guy, and they have four pretty great kids and one old brown dog. She lives in St. Paul, Minnesota.
