It "warns" kids of the danger of lightning by saying that it can start your house on fire, and that it kills cows and horses and people. And that if there is a storm, they should stay away from TVs, bathtubs, sinks, phones, wires, and pipes, because they all carry lightning into the house. And the way it's presented, it makes it seem like those things are all pretty much guaranteed during a storm (but also tells kids to get inside immediately during a storm, because otherwise they're at risk of getting struck by lightning).
So, if you want your youngster to be terrified of lightning, by all means, read this book to them. I'd probably skip this one.
