Cozy up for this great rainy day read! Prairie Storms gives you a front row seat to learn about a year of ever-changing prairie weather, and how the animals living in these grasslands adapt and survive in this harsh climate. Each month, read about a new animal, and learn about everything from how a prairie grouse can survive the January snows to how an earless lizards escapes the harsh, unrelenting drought of August. Told in lyrical prose, this story is a celebration of the great American prairies.
In Prairie Storms, a different animal and different month is featured on each page. Some animals we were familiar with, while others we just learned about while reading the book. The animals are featured and given explanation for what they do during storms and harsh weather conditions. In the "Creative Minds" section of the book, there is information and quizzes on grassland habitats, grasslands around the world, and seasonal changes. This is a wonderful book to introduce to your child about these topics.
Prairie Storms is a Fall 2011 release from Sylvan Dell Publishing.
