Margi Preus and illustrated by David Geister is a book anyone who has visited the North Shore of Minnesota would enjoy. Sophie lives on Lake Superior at Split Rock Lighthouse with her family. She knows the weather signs and goes about telling her brothers and sisters that the storm is coming. This book would also be good to share with students on a unit about nature's signals. At the end of the story there is a page explaining the different signs, which was new information for me. Good for middle or older level elementary students, adults will find the story engaging as well. I added it to my list of books to share with students highlighting Minnesota.
