WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, SEPTEMBER 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Science Naturally is proud to launch the Kickstarter campaign for TV meteorologist Guy Brown’s debut children’s book, Look Up to See What the Weather Will Be to introduce. In Guy’s book, he gives readers a glimpse behind the scenes into the everyday life of a meteorologist – and also inspires a new generation of weather experts.
Science Naturally starts the Kickstarter campaign on September 14th, which offers meteorologists, parents, educators and science enthusiasts the opportunity to support this first MINT author. Created for kids ages 7-10, this title gives kids a glimpse into Guy’s life as a TV meteorologist and the science behind weather forecasting.
Weather is all around us. It’s on the news, on the radio, and part of everyday conversation. Looking up to see what the weather will be like helps kids understand a piece of science that is always present and important – by determining when to go to the swimming pool, when your soccer game is canceled, and when to wear a jacket should.
In the book, Guy Brown shares his notes on everything from weather forecasting tools like satellites and radar to extreme weather conditions and ways to stay safe when they arise. More than just cloud and storm education, the Tillywig Toy Awards recognizes this book for containing “a wide variety of animals, domesticated and wild, whose adaptations have helped them survive or thrive in severe weather.”
This title encourages young readers to ponder connections in the world around them. Look up to see what the weather will be like, shows that the weather affects all living things and that watching out for changes in weather is an important part of life for humans and animals.
“Looking up to see what the weather will be is a great introduction to weather and forecasting tools. Informative, fun, and uplifting, this book features vibrant illustrations and rhymed chapter titles that are inviting and relatable. I highly recommend this book to young readers, as well as parents and teachers, “said Spencer Christian, weather forecaster for ABC7 News, San Francisco.
For Kickstarter supporters, Science Naturally will be issuing a guided activity journal to expand and broaden readers’ natural curiosity. With temperature zone coloring pages, thought-provoking Q&A, badges for weather prep, and more, My Weather Journal is a fun way to further explore guys’ weather tips and tricks.
Another bonus for Kickstarter supporters is sticker sheets that match the sticker designs in the book. Depending on the level of participation, Kickstarter Backers may receive hardback and / or paperback books, copies of My Weather Journal, and sticker sheets.

A comprehensive teacher’s guide is also available with additional content, hands-on activities, and formulations on next-generation science standards. Teacher’s manuals can be downloaded for free from our website. With activities like “Name that Cloud!” And “Find the Horse for a Tornado,” this guide is a valuable resource for parents and educators alike.

The illustrator Mario Lugo lives in São Paulo, Brazil. Born in San German, Puerto Rico, he is fluent in Portuguese, Spanish and English, but his joy comes from expressing himself through art.
