This book draws you in!

So I started off just enjoying the colors, then was tickled by the rhyming (so engaging), got totally hooked into were they going to make it?, was blown away-truly-by the painting of grandpa’s car!!, before the left side of the brain kicked in and said, “Hey, look at these words! There’s a lesson here! And look at the info about these birds-they can’t fly!” Only to discover that you guys already covered all that at the end of the book! Duh! And so many other great ideas. But most importantly, the book draws you in with its beautiful paintings, colors, prose, and information. You are learning without realizing it. A true treasure! Thank you so much for this autographed copy-it will be part of Oma and Opa’s hand-me-downs. Such a gentle recapture of an event that changed many lives. Emus included.

I recommend this product.

Brilliant!

I’m so excited and proud of my dear friend Michele C Fortenberry !This is her first Children’s book. Michele, you have always been so creative and gifted with educating children for as long as I’ve known you. This is a such a cute book and I love how you added the Words to Explore & Conversation Starters, so children who have been through or preparing for hurricanes- can discuss how they may be feeling.

I recommend this product.

Amazing book!

I absolutely love this book! It's a true story about my parents pet Emus that rode out hurricane Rita in the backyard of my childhood home in Beaumont, Texas. Michele did an excellent job relaying the feelings these flightless birds must have felt. It's a great book to help children prepare for the unknown feelings that often well up during situations of evacuation.

I recommend this product.
