I was sent a review copy for feature
by Robert Scott Thayer
As a parent to a second grader I am always on the hunt for books that educate and teach science or history as those are the least focused subjects in the lower grades. While I look for science and history titles, he gravitates to adventure and mystery. The best type to read is one that combines the two, like a good adventure to learn weather and science facts for kids with Kobee Manatee in this new book.
Kobee goes on a long adventure to try and reach his sister for her birthday. He wants to surprise her but she lives in the Bahamas and he lives all the way in Key West, Florida. The tricky part-it is hurricane season! He must battle the season through the Atlantic and into the Gulf Stream. He brings two friends with him for the journey and as you read the book your child will experience surprises and fun facts on each page about weather.
Here is a sample fact:
A rip current is a very strong current that flows away from the shore. It is usually narrow in width. If you get caught in one, don’t panic. Swim parallel to the shore, and swim back in.
