Lions, Leopards, and Storms, Oh My!

Lily and Niko are at childcare when the weather changes and a thunderstorm strikes. One of the children’s parents is a meteorologist and he talks with the children about thunderstorms. They learn about severe weather events like thunderstorms and what conditions these events can bring, like lightning, hail, and winds. They also learn what to do to stay safe.

Reading this book is a great way for parents, childcare providers, and caregivers, to talk to toddlers and preschool children about thunderstorms in a non-scary way. Children can easily relate with these characters and their story gives children the tools and information they need to help stay safe should a thunderstorm happen.

Lions, Leopards, and Storms, Oh My! Endorsement:

"Lions, Leopards and Storms, Oh My" takes readers on an educational journey through a thunderstorm. Author Heather Beal engages her audience with eye-catching illustrations and occasional jokes - all while teaching the basics of meteorology and severe weather safety! As a meteorologist, I highly recommend this book for parents to read with young children, or for teachers to read with their students!
