About the Author

Heather was raised to give 100% to every endeavor. Since her earliest experiences in Girl Scouts, numerous volunteer events and organizations, she has always sought to make a difference. After graduating college, she served our country with 23 years of distinguished Naval service. Dedicated to self-improvement, she obtained masters degrees in Asian studies, conflict resolution, cyber security policy and emergency management while on active duty. She is qualified as a Certified Emergency Manager (CEM) with the International Association of Emergency Mangers. She is currently working on a PhD in Emergency Management with a special study focus on childcare recovery. As a working parent of two, she became aware of just how much of a gap existed in emergency preparedness and recovery training and resources for childcare providers and vowed to use her experiences, education, and more importantly, motivation, to help improve current limitations. In addition to publishing books to help teach children about what to do in case of disaster, she has also created a nonprofit, BLOCKS. BLOCKS' mission is to help prepare childcare for disaster.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Lily and Ciena look up at the sky after hearing a noise. It is dark. Mrs. Mandy takes the children indoors because outside there is thunder and lightning and she tells them it is not safe to play outside when there is thunder and lightning. She introduces her class to Roman’s father, who is a meteorologist, and tells them that he is going to talk about the weather. He speaks to the class about thunder and lightning and why thunder comes after lightning. He also explains about storm, hail, lightning, and thunder and what has to be done during a storm. 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. The questions and activities at the end of the book are helpful for readers to reflect on the story. Books like this are perfect for children to learn about new concepts in a relaxed way without feeling stressed. 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.
