Yesterday We Had A Hurricane is a Blackfish Children's Book.
Yesterday We Had A Hurricane (Bilingual Edition - English & Spanish) re-tells the experience of a hurricane as seen through the eyes of a young child. Young readers will learn all about these “big storms that come from the ocean.” They’ll find out about the effects of wind and rain, as well as some of the more lighthearted and practical alternatives to doing without electricity.
Author/Illustrator Deirdre McLaughlin Mercier brings a deft touch and an understanding of her readers to the tale. Her colorful collage illustrations make hurricanes non-threatening and bring them down to “child size” – making this book a wonderful resource for parents and schoolteachers. Each page of the story provides an opportunity to talk about the storm and the feelings associated with it.
It is an interactive touchable picture book for children ages 3 to 8.
“With the images of several devastating storms and other natural disasters of recent history still fresh in our minds, Yesterday We Had A Hurricane is a terrific tool for parents and educators to help children come to grips with these frightening events. The simple text and beautiful collage illustrations focus on a common childhood fear — feeling safe when the world seems out of control.”
~ Deb Capone, author of the award-winning children’s classics Families Are Forever, Dumplings Are Delicious and Tooth Fairy Tales
“Using straightforward language and uncomplicated artwork, this book achieves its goal of helping young children cope with the disaster of a hurricane.”
