Waiting Out the Storm

author: JoAnn Early Macken
illustrator: Susan Gaber

"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.

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. (Ages 4-7)
