I really enjoyed the gentle, rhyming text and the soft color illustrations fit wonderfully. This book was like a reassuring lullabye that I think children and their mothers would both enjoy.

A young child nervously questions her mother about an impending storm. Comforting story.

Waiting out the storm: I felt this story was sweet and good for parents to read to their children. It talks of the relationship children have with their parents so I don’t think it would be very appropriate to use this in the classroom.

A beautiful picture book about the relationship between a mother and her daughter during a storm. A mom full of love and care explains to her daughter what the storm is and comforts her that everything is going to be ok. I would use this book during a science class about storms and also to teach about love and care.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 076363378X, Hardcover)

A gentle, joyous tale for children everywhere who seek comfort during a storm—and parents who share with them a sense of nature’s wonders.

"Yes, Buttercup?"
"What’s that I hear?"

Wind whistles in the treetops, thunder rumbles, and lightning flashes and dashes between raindrops. Snug inside, a mother and child listen, watch, and wonder what the animals will do during the storm. Paired with beautiful illustrations evoking the moods and mysteries of the natural world, this lyrical call-and-response text is a lullaby to stormy weather — and to the warmth and safety of home.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:16:20 -0400)

A mother reassures her child about the wind, lightning, and thunder when a storm passes through.
