Over in the Wetlands: A Hurricane-on-the-Bayou Story

How do animals who live in hurricane-prone areas prepare for a storm? Do they know when a storm is coming? How do they prepare?

This beautifully illustrated story shares how animals in the Louisiana wetlands prepare prepare for a coming storm. This picture book is written in lyrical verse making it much more delightful to read than a reference book on the topic. It’s also told simply enough for young children to understand.

Gentle as a whisper too soft to hear,
a faint breeze hints that a storm draws near.

The story begins with the hint of a storm brewing. As the reader, we follow along as the storm builds, rages, and dies down. By the end, the bayou and its inhabitants return to their peaceful environments. Artwork by Rob Dunlavey shows the different storm phases and how the various wildlife experiences it.

If you live in an area that experiences hurricane season, this is a great picture book for exploring its impact on animal life. If not, it’s a great way to introduce an area of the world that’s unfamiliar.
