WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, September 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Science Naturally is pleased to present the Kickstarter campaign for TV meteorologist Guy Brown’s first children’s book, Look Up to See What the Weather Will Be. In Guy’s book, he gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at the daily life of a meteorologist and inspires a new generation of weather experts along the way.
Science Naturally will launch the Kickstarter campaign on September 14, offering meteorologists, parents, educators and science enthusiasts the opportunity to support this premier STEM author. Developed for ages 7-10, this Science-Through-Literature title gives kids a glimpse into Guy’s life as a TV meteorologist and the science behind weather forecasts.
Time is all around us. It’s in the news, on the radio, and in everyday conversation. Looking up to see what the weather will be like helps kids understand an element of natural science that is always present and important: figuring out when you can go to the pool, when your soccer game will be called off, and when you should wear a jacket.
In the book, Guy Brown shares his notes on everything from weather forecasting tools, like satellites and radars, to the types of extreme weather conditions and how to stay safe when they do occur. Much more than just cloud and weather education, the Tillywig Toy Awards praise this book for including “a multitude of animals, domesticated and wild, whose adaptations have helped them survive or survive. thrive in strong weather ”.
This title encourages young readers to think about the 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 monitoring weather changes is an important part of human and animal life.
“Look Up to See What the Weather Will Be is a great introduction to weather and forecasting tools. Informative, entertaining and uplifting – this book features vivid illustrations and rhyming chapter titles that are inviting and relevant. I highly recommend this book to young readers, as well as parents and teachers, ”says Spencer Christian, meteorologist for ABC7 News, San Francisco.
For Kickstarter contributors, Science Naturally will publish a journal of guided activities to develop and expand readers’ natural curiosity. Complete with temperature zone coloring pages, challenging question-and-answer exercises, weather prep badges and more, My Weather Journal is a fun way to continue exploring Guy’s weather tips and tricks.
Another bonus for Kickstarter supporters are the sticker sheets, which are adapted from the sticker designs featured in the book. Depending on the level of participation, Kickstarter contributors may receive hardcover and / or paperback books, copies of My Weather Journal, and sticker sheets.
