Ages: Prek- 3rd grade

Wiesner’s illustrations are created in watercolor on Arches paper in the book, Hurricane.
He used thin, black lines to frame the realistic artwork which had very dark value in the beginning of the story and moved to a brighter intensity after the storm passed. It included a lot of texture in the details. The text was placed vertically surrounded by negative space during the beginning of the story, the pattern followed the flow of the pictures, turning horizontal and pacing the passage of time. Children will be able to envision themselves playing pretend. We also hold emergency drills in the school so they can relate to storms.
