Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3–Hurricane Anna is approaching, and Noahs family gets prepared. While Mom and Dad nail up the special shutters, Noah paints Go Away Hurricane Wolf! on his bedroom window shutter. The birdhouse and other outside items are carried inside, the tub is filled with water, and valuable papers are stored in plastic. The family makes a quick trip to the store for food and storm supplies, then settles in to track the hurricane on TV and computer. A category two storm arrives and passes by the second morning. Noah and his parents go outside to see the damage and begin to clean up. Patersons watercolor world is bright and tropical. Without being too scary, she presents the facts and the how and why of preparedness. While the story is similar to Corinne Demass Hurricane (Marshall Cavendish, 2000), libraries in hurricane-prone areas will want to own this title as well.–Angela J. Reynolds, Annapolis Valley Regional Library, Bridgetown, NS, Canada

From Booklist

K-Gr. 3. Noah and his parents prepare for Hurricane Anna. They put shutters on the windows, buy supplies, store important papers in waterproof containers. To Noah, Anna arrives like a wild animal ("The wind snapped and snarled. Branches scratched and clawed"), but his parents are there for him, explaining what's happening in accessible language and using analogies Jake can relate to. After the storm, the family shows concern for others as it moves on to put things right. The vibrant colors in the paintings leaven the description of the situation without minimizing the child's fear. Including suggestions for putting together a "hurricane kit," the appended material, with cartoonlike illustrations (the^B Saffir-Simpson Scale for measuring hurricane strength is visualized in terms of cats with increasingly mean expressions), is for adult-child sharing. An informative, child-centered approach that highlights the importance of adult-child dialogue and provides an opportunity to help children get through a scary experience. Shelle Rosenfeld

Format: Hardcover
What a great book to help children deal with hurricane preparedness. Wonderful illustrations and written with warmth and humor. It also deals with the real fear that a bad storm can be a life changing experience, as it was for the children that went through Charley and Katrina. Having been through a Cat 4 storm, I recommend this book for all children and plan to send a copy to my granddaughter in Maryland. It may be geared to children but adults will enjoy reading it too!
