The Big Storm
Ms. Eileen took advantage of the change in weather today and read stories about the cold weather including "The Big Storm" by Nancy Tafuri. If you don't know about Nancy Tafuri yet, you should check out some of her books at the library. All are very beautifully illustrated with clear, gentle story lines. In "The Big Storm" forest animals search for a safe place when a big storm blows in. When they find out their safe haven isn't so safe they make a hasty retreat giving the reader the opportunity for counting up and back. Other Nancy Tafuri favorites include "The Very Busy Squirrel", "Will You Be My Friend?", and "Snowy, Flowy, Blowy". They are perfect books for babies to preschool age. Here's hoping you stay warm and dry during out weekend Nor'easter.
