by Margaret Bloy Graham and Charlotte Zolotow. I get this book out when the summer monsoons come to Arizona every year. And my kids - especially my oldest son - always wish we lived in a house with a tree swing, like the house in the illustration.

by Margaret Bloy Graham and Charlotte Zolotow. Every time I read this to my family, I am surprised by how much text there is. All I ever remember from year to year are the illustrations - they are powerful illustrations. This is the first year I noticed that the illustrator is Margaret Bloy Graham, who did "Harry the Dirty Dog". We love that one, to. I love the descriptive text.

This book lays down a very good understanding of a storm. Although it does have great facts in the story about a storm, I did not personally feel it would catch the attention of young children. This book was not easy to follow and not easily read. Very nice pictures portrayed but not colorful to grab a young child's attention. 1. Have each child use cotton balls and foil to collage a picture of what they might see in a storm. 2. This is a great time to introduce a "My Lil' Book of Fears". Each child adds to this as needed.

It is a day in the country.

Quiet, dusty, expectant.

Everything is hot and still.

 

Then the hazy sky begins to shift.

Something is astir, something soundless.

Shadows move over the world.

 

And then it happens!

Shooting through the sky like starlight…

What was that?

This is a great descriptive children's book of the effect of a thunderstorm on different areas (farm, city, etc.) and it has a beautiful, rolling cadence to it. It took a few readings to get used to the lengthy sentences and enunciate the story accurately. I love it, and it's become a favorite of my three year old son. I purchased this to help him get used to the concept of storms, which happen very frequently here in Texas and can pop up quite suddenly (and loudly). We read it during the last thunderstorm that rolled in and he was able to see it as a normal part of life that you need to respect, but not be terrified of.

Some people find this story slow. There is a lot of repetition, but because of that, my two year old listener loves it. She adores the pictures which, having been done by Maurice Sendak, are fabulous. It's just a little girl who is trying to figure out what to give her mother. Mr. Rabbit tries very hard to be helpful. What do you think they come up with?

It is my fault that I did not check the ages. This is 4-6 and he is 3 but I will save it. It is just very descriptive and not full of pictures. Right now I just shorten it and read to him anyway. It is lovely and I would still recommend the book.

My daughter received this book in her Easter basket and she absolutely loves it! It is a very cute story that keeps my five year old's attention and has her begging me to read it again. My cousin recommended this book, remembering it from her childhood 20+ years ago. This book would also be a great story to incorporate into an art teachers lesson. It talks about colors and could have endless possibilities in the classroom.

This book was a nice addition to our 1st and 2nd grade weather unit.
The combination of Zolotow and Sendak is totally rewarding, and it's just a nice story showing a conversation between two friends. Nothing exciting or adventurous, and the illustrations are wonderful.
