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.
Can be quite freighting. I bought these books to help my young granddaughter, who by the way is not only
Frightened by storms but can be terrified by threats of a storm.. I have no idea how she became so scared of storms
But thought by helping her understand how they happen she could gain better control of her emotions. I would never
Let her read this book because of those two words alone even thoughnitbedds with the thought "no reason to fear storms".
