When Hurricane Rita made landfall in Beaumont, Texas a pair of flightless birds, Leroy and Emily, learned firsthand what it meant to weather the storms of life. Together, they withstood high winds, torrential rains, and flying debris. Together, they found the courage they needed to face their fears, and in the process discovered just how brave they really were.

My Grandchildren Loved Emu Blues!

A friend gave me this book, knowing I had grandchildren . The vibrant illustrations and story captured them right away. Hurricanes happen, and reading Emu Blues is a non threatening way to explain what goes on with people and animals...in this case, emus! An additional perk for young readers is the rhyming text. The end notes on vocabulary used and the "story behind the story" are a great addition, as are the additional resources online. As a retired librarian, this is an excellent book to put into a library collection. Lush, colorful pictures and a rhyming text both combine to make a beautiful picture book!

I don't recommend this product.

My son loves it!

We purchased the book at the Nutcracker Market in Pasadena today and my son has asked us to read it at least 3 times today. He loves the story. Such a great book!

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.

Wonderful

Emu Blues is a book that keeps you wondering until the very end of the wonders of faith in the time of challenge. This is a great story to help kids understand that goodness and restoration of all things is always possible when you trust and believe.

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.
