Hurricane Vacation

Preschoolers Lily and Niko get a crash course on how to handle the unexpected when their vacation changes from sand castles and swimming to lessons in hurricane preparedness. But as the kids prepare to evacuate with their cousin Emma and her family, Niko’s favorite stuffy gets lost. Will they find him in time to evacuate safely? Or will this fuzzy family member get left behind?

Reading this book is a great way for parents, childcare providers, and caregivers, to talk to toddlers and preschool children about hurricane preparedness and evacuation in a non-scary way.

Hurricane Vacation Endorsement:

"Hurricane Vacation" is the delightful tale of a beach vacation that is interrupted by a hurricane. As the hurricane approaches, the adults calmly explain to the children what a hurricane is and how to prepare for its arrival. They also explain the importance of evacuating for the storm, where to go and what to bring to a shelter. "Hurricane Vacation" is a wonderful primer for children on hurricane preparedness, because it makes the subtle point that with preparation comes confidence. If you live in a hurricane prone region and have young children, this is a must-have addition for your library.
