Young Reader Reaction: Because the story sounds like a song when you read it, it is very entertaining. I would highly recommend reading this with all children up to 5 years-old. It is a bilingual book, so it would especially help those kids who are learning Spanish as well as English.

Adult Reader Reaction: Review pending.

Pros: Fun rhymes and colorful illustrations help kids not only understand thunderstorms, but gives them ideas to overcome those fears.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Borrow, at least. This is a lighthearted way to offer support to a child who is afraid of thunder.
