Overview

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, and recognized as an Outstanding Science Trade Book by the National Science Teachers Association, 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.
