Hurricane Boy
Now Playing: Learning about Life, Weather & Survival
Topic: Books

This story shares what it was like for a family to live through Katrina, one of the worst hurricanes ever in New Orleans.

How do you survive a storm of that magnitude? It is hard to plan for something that you have never gone through before.

The young man in this story grows and learns how to help others and solve problems.

It was so interesting and exciting that I read it in one day!
