Hurricane Vacation: A Hurricane Preparedness Book (Hardcover)
Preschoolers Lily and Niko get a crash course on how to handle the unexpected when their vacation changes from sand castles and swimming to lessons in hurricane preparedness. But as the kids prepare to evacuate with their cousin Emma and her family, Niko's favorite stuffy gets lost. Will they find him in time to evacuate safely? Or will this fuzzy family member get left behind?
Reading this book is a great way for parents, childcare providers, and caregivers, to talk to toddlers and preschool children about hurricane preparedness and evacuation in a non-scary way.

This book perfectly captures cousins, especially in mixed-race families. Reading it I was immediately brought back to the early days of interacting with my cousins and noticing the differences between their family and mine. Also reminiscent of the Caldecott Honor, When the Relatives Came. Truly a book I wish I could have had when I was growing up. - Jessica
