Ready, Set...WAIT! Book Review and Giveaway!

Whenever we hear about hurricanes, we think about ways to prepare and be ready. We watch the news, we gather supplies...but what do animals do? Do they even know if a hurricane is coming?

Ready, Set...WAIT! What Animals Do Before a Hurricane by Patti R. Zelch is a children's book about animals and how they prepare for a hurricane. Ready, Set...WAIT! provides information about how sharks, fish, crocodiles, butterflies and other animals respond and prepare for the storm. Connie McLennan does a beautiful job on the illustrations, they are both colorful and eye catching. Children will love looking at the pictures while they learn about the animals.

I really enjoyed Ready, Set...WAIT! Before reading the book I didn't even think about how animals reacted to hurricanes. The title alone drew me in! I also like that the reading level is perfect for young readers. I had my 7 year old son read the story to me. Although there were some challenging words he had to sound out, he was able to read the whole story with very little help.
