Review: The Angry Thunderstorm by Carol Henson Keesee

The Angry Thunderstorm rolls into a child's world in the middle of the night awakening her with a fright. Witnessing his booming display, the child trembles with fear. The Angry Thunderstorm acknowledges that he sounds ill-tempered because it takes such a powerful display to do his job. The wind. The thunder. The flashes of light. All of these seem scary. His intent is often misunderstood and his presence is seldom welcomed. But as he explains the reason behind his gruff display, the child is reassured that he does these things for a very good reason.

Received from the author for review.

This was very cute and, if you have children, would be a nice way to ease fears of thunderstorms.

The illustrations were nice accompaniments to the story. The ones of the thunderstorm were especially cute.

This one gets seven stars. It would be a nice educational tool for children who are afraid of storms, or just fun reading for others who aren't. The story format is especially good for reading aloud.

Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
