A girl and her mother are outside when a thunderstorm approaches. The girl asks her mother about all the different noises in the natural world, and what the animals do, when the rain falls. The mother answers and, as the two make their way inside and watch the storm from the comfort of their house, they wait out the storm.

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.

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.
