Jose and his family are preparing for a big hurricane, so they shutter windows, stock up on supplies and watch the weather forecast. Laura goes to school, takes a piano lesson and goes to see the world’s largest radio telescope, which scientists use to try to find life in outer space.

See full description, below.

 

0001282_PuertoRico1Nine-year-old Jose lives with his family near San Juan. His mother works at a dialysis center and his father services and sells scales for science. Everyone is preparing for a big hurricane that is expected to hit the island, so they shutter windows, stock up on supplies at the stores and watch the weather forecast.

Laura, age eight, lives with her parents on their farm, where they grow bananas and tropical plants. Her father also works for a company that sells fruits and vegetables to stores and restaurants. Her mother demonstrates new environmental farming methods. We visit Laura’s school and piano lesson and go to Aricebo, where they have the world’s largest radio telescope, which scientists use to try to find life in outer space.
