OUR BOOKS:

Big Storm

 

 

 

 

It starts to rain and thunder and the forest animals huddle in the hill hollow – all 10 of them (including a slightly smelly skunk).  The rain clears and so do the animals as they try to avoid two sleeping bears.  All ends well with a rainbow.

Rain means puddles…the more it rains, the bigger the puddles get!  As a puddle grows bigger, so do the animals that jump in!  A wonderful story with gentle illustrations.
