Brought to life in this delightful story are some of nature's most spectacular phenomena. There are few things more exciting than a monsoon storm, with its dramatic lightning, thunder, wind, and cloudbursts. "Hip Hip Hooray, It's Monsoon Day!" is a story of how many people anticipate and celebrate the coming of the monsoon season, which largely defines North America's spectacular Sonoran Desert. As the story unfolds, Aaron and his family introduce us to cultural traditions and meterorological wonders, and to the animals and plants of this region. Bilingual. 2007 42 pp Ages 9-12.
