Lions, Leopards, And Storms, Oh My! A Thunderstorm Safety Book by Heather L. Beal is an informative and educational story that makes learning science interesting and gives tips on how to stay safe when a thunderstorm happens. I like the author’s approach to the topic. Beal blends science and information with art and creativity, thereby making the concept and learning an exciting experience for young readers. The illustrations are charming and they breathe life into the characters and story, and make learning playful and interactive.

It is a good storybook for tutors and parents to read out loud to youngsters and there are a few activities that can be done in the classroom together.
