Hurricanes are incredible displays of power. Use this list of hurricane books to help your students understand how and why hurricanes happen.
The first decade of my life was lived in the Sunshine State. I have memories of huddling in the living room as Tropical Storm Marco took the entire porch off the back of our house. I have a vivid memory of the first clouds from Hurricane Andrew encroaching upon the bright blue of a summer sky in 1992.
These massive storms have always been fascinating to me. It boggles my mind how a few grains of sand and dust blowing off the shores of Africa can become a monster that does enormous amounts of damage on Caribbean and American shores.
I’ve searched high and low to find as many books as I can to teach my children about these storms, and have built this list for you to use when you’re learning about hurricanes in your home or homeschool.
