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.

I was surprised about how the illustrations were so clear and almost lifelike. The little girl asks questions about the storm that is settling in, and the mother answers each in a wonderful way that any child would be interested by. This is a great story to read to young children. It gives some information about stormy weather and introduces what animals do during this time.

Wind whistles in the treetops, thunder rumbles, and lighting flashes and dashes between raindrops. A mother and a child listen, watch, and wonder what the animals will do during the storm. ( )

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.

"Mama?"
"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 Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:43:16 -0400)

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