Product Details


“McPhail sets the vignettes against pale lilac and teal backdrops, softening the edges of the frames with a fuzzy, airbrushed effect. The refrain is calm and grounding, while the first-person point of view conveys closeness. . . . Storms can be scary, but this story wraps you in a warm hug.”Kirkus Reviews

“Young readers will recognize the storm’s impact through McPhail’s use of line—curtains blowing in the window, hair flowing back with the force of the wind. . . . The text, dominated by simple sentences and sight words, make this story ideal for sharing. . . . An excellent addition to early elementary collections, perfect for sharing, starting conversations, or creating activities. “—School Library Journal

“McPhail’s softly focused illustrations atmospherically evoke the stormy night world. . . . A warm, reassuring picture book about weathering storms together.”Booklist
“McPhail makes expert use of ink and watercolors in cool tones to bring a sense of peacefulness to the story. . . . A soothing read for young children and their caregivers, and an opportunity to discuss uncertainty, fear, and solutions for comfort.”—The Horn Book

“There’s an ever-deepening, lullaby-like rhythm at work in the concise, unadorned prose, and single-plane pen, ink, and watercolor art supplies soft textures and colors that radiate a subtle glow. . . . Storms come and go, but love is constant in this portrait of familial closeness.”—Publishers Weekly
