Guy Brown’s illustrated book, successfully funded on Kickstarter, shows how humans and animals are universally affected by the weather
WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Science Naturally is pleased to announce the release of TV meteorologist Guy Brown’s debut children’s book, Look Up to See What the Weather Will Be. In Guy’s book, he gives readers a behind-the-scenes look into a meteorologist’s daily life—and inspires a new generation of weather experts along the way.
This book project was posted on Kickstarter in September, providing meteorologists, parents, educators, and science enthusiasts with the opportunity to support Guy and his goal of teaching kids about weather. The book received over 100% of its funding goal over the course of the two-week campaign.
Weather is all around us. It's in the news, on the radio, and part of everyday conversations. Look Up to See What the Weather Will Be helps kids understand a piece of natural science that is always present and important—determining when you can go to the pool, when your soccer game will be cancelled, and when you should wear a jacket.
In the book, Guy Brown shares his notes on everything from weather forecasting tools, like satellites and radar, to types of extreme weather conditions and ways you can stay safe when they arise. Far more than just cloud and severe weather education, Tillywig Toy Awards praises this book for including “a host of animals, domesticated and wild, whose adaptations have helped them survive or thrive in strong weather.”
This title encourages young readers to think about connections that exist in the world around them. Look Up to See What the Weather Will Be shows that weather affects all living things and that looking out for changes in the weather is an important part of life for humans and animals alike.
“Look Up to See What the Weather Will Be is a terrific introduction to weather and the tools of forecasting. Informative, entertaining, and uplifting—this book features vivid illustrations and rhyming chapter titles that are inviting and relatable. I highly recommend this book for young readers, and for parents and teachers as well.”
—Spencer Christian, Weather Forecaster, ABC7 News, San Francisco, CA
