Very cute book! My kids often get anxious during storms. This story made them feel like they were not alone in feeling this way. The book is colorful and has a cute pillow and animals to go along with it. A perfect size to travel with! :)
Storms can represent a sudden and frightening change in the environment. They’re noisy and disruptive and can rattle more than windows. If you’ve ever had a child in your family who has been frightened by storms, you’ll be interested in Melissa Pope’s solution. Her own son had that problem and eventually, she found a way to help kids cope. She shares it through her new book Storm Buddies, and the plush stuffed animals themselves in their cloud pillow. Melissa spent a number of years as a teacher and that made it easier to identify with them and write the book.
