No science. I, personally, did not care for the illustrations. I find it hard to imagine a little farm boy would run across the fields to ask his mom what the silver streak (of lightning) was - I grew up rural and believe me, when a storm is coming, we're sticking close to the storm shelter. I also find it hard to believe a young shepherd with a new baby could have such a nice home.

I do agree that the text is lovely. And I like the way the storm is portrayed across different contexts by different people. And it's treated as just a storm - just a natural part of life - nothing to be scared of. ( )

Summary: What a thunder storm is like in the country side, in a city, on a sea shore, and in the mountains.

Personal Opinion: Wonderful little book I would love to keep for my own children in the very distance future. I enjoyed how to shows what storms are like in different places and I can see my self sitting down showing my kids what it's like where I was raised, country side, and where my husband was raised, in the Smoky Mountains. The art work look to be done in water color and pen that shows to the softness of rain and sharp edges of figures and buildings.

Classroom Extensions:
1. Learn the different types of storms and clouds.
2. Explore different art styles and have a art day!
3. Work on adjectives.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0064431940, Paperback)

It is a day in the country,
and everthing is hot and still.
Then the hazy sky begins to shift.
Something is astir, something soundless.

(see all 2 descriptions)

When a summer storm sweeps over countryside, city, and seashore, people and animals wait for the rainbow at the end of the storm.
