This book is a story about a hurricane in the rainforest around the mountain called El Yunque. It is a wonderful vehicle for telling the story of how a hurricane forms and moves across the ocean, how hurricanes of long ago, just like those of today, displace animals and seeds to new locations, and how the hurricane is an essential part of the renewal of our landscape. Various native birds and animals are mentioned, too. This book provides opportunity for many discussions with your child about weather, about nature and about the animals and plants mentioned. Couched in a story about two children who are visiting the forest, it should stimulate an interest in visiting and in learning more about El Yunque.
