StoryTime with Amy Sweezey

By OSC on December 8, 2017 in What's New

Orlando Science Center is welcoming WESH 2 News Meteorologist Amy Sweezey to read her NEW children’s picture book, Let’s Talk Weather: TV Forecasting Behind the Scenes” during StoryTime on Saturday, December 9!

The nonfiction, hardcover science book gives kids a first-hand look at how broadcast meteorologists gather information and work to keep people safe during dangerous weather. With illustrations by Orlando designer Amanda Bardwell, the book takes a fun approach to teaching children how to determine if the weather will be hot or cold, sunny or cloudy, and why the weather is constantly changing.

While writing “Let’s Talk Weather,” Sweezey drew from her more than two decades of experience, breaking down complicated scientific concepts into simple forecasts for a television audience.

Visit Orlando Science Center at 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 9 to meet Amy and listen as she reads her book. Additional readings will be offered until 1 p.m.
