Book Description

As thunder and lightning approach, a family gathers inside to play, sing, eat, and snuggle together until the weather clears. This sweet story captures both the excitement of a thunderstorm and the reassurance children need during a storm. The lively, rhythmic text mimics the storm sounds while the bold, playful art conveys this special family time.

Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The sky begins to darken and large clouds form as "Thunder claps / Outside the door-- / Boom. Boom. Bang! / Rumble, rap, / ROAR!" The swing begins to move beneath the tree as leaves swirl through the sky. Three little faces are seen in a lighted window as the storm tells them it's on it's way. Their eyes widened as the lighting crackles outside their window. They step back from the window and they dog peeks out from underneath the bed. Oh, no! The storm has arrived and it's time to hug that teddy tight. The raindrops pitter patter on the roof and they race down the stairs.

Alive, the sky is alive with activity they can see from the picture window. The raindrops mix with the swirling leaves as the lightning lights up the darkened sky. "Lights go out. / the children jump-- / Bustle, / bark, / BUMP!" Oh, no, it's a very scary time and where is Mom? She gathers them close to sing them songs and even the dog begins to smile. It's a scary time. The rain comes down in buckets and there's still no light. Is there anything that can make the children smile again?

This is a delightfully charming day of three children and their very scary stormy day. The prose captures the fear, excitement, and wonder a thunderstorm brings to children. Thunderstorms can be awesome to some, but very scary to many little ones. The digital artwork captures their tentative feelings and fright as the storm brews and erupts around them. Their Mom knows just how to bring comfort to them, releasing them from the fear they feel. This is one of those perfect cuddle up and read books, especially when that thunder begins to rumble in the distance!

5.0 out of 5 stars nicely done June 2, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Nancy Viau's "Storm Song," a cute little book for very young children, will sooth any fears they may have about noisy and potentially scary thunderstorms; it just may delight them as well! The words don't truly tell a story; for example, the children don't even have names and pages of the book are devoted to the sounds thunderstorms make. Nevertheless, this book does give children a good idea of what happens during a thunderstorm and how their parents, grandparents or other grownups can be there to comfort them by singing songs or making popcorn for them to enjoy! The beautiful illustrations by Gynux couldn't have been done any better; they add a somewhat bouncy tone to the overall message of the book so that the child learns not just some new words but also the lesson that a thundershower isn't such a terrible or dangerous thing after all.

Some say that this is a "read-aloud" book; and I agree. This book is probably best for young children just learning to read; it's a great way for them to bond with parents, grandparents and others. I also agree with the reviewer who writes that author Nancy Viau uses a great deal of onomatopoeia in this book. Very good!

Somewhat older children can return to this book to understand the use of onomatopoeia; that's terrific because then the book can be a learning tool all over again!

I highly recommend this book for very young children just learning to read and appreciate the high value of books. Older kids can read this book again and see examples of onomatopoeia.

3.0 out of 5 stars too slow March 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Did not keep the attention of my four year old, perhaps better for a slightly younger child. Did not ask for a re-read like she normally does.
