A Party for Clouds: Thunderstorms (Bel the Weather Girl) by Belinda Jensen – ADVISABLE

Jensen, Belinda A Party for Clouds: Thunderstorms (Bel the Weather Girl) Millbrook(Lerner) 2016. $20.00 PICTURE BOOK/NON-FICTION
Bel and his cousin Dylan are having a sleepover when a thunderstorm strikes. Dylan is scared and hides in their blanket fort, but Bel knows all about this kind of weather. She tells him why thunder is loud and teaches him how to count how far away a thunderstorm is. Not only does Dylan feels much better when the storm starts moving away but he knows what to do next time a storms strikes.
I am becoming a big fan of the series and am going to add the rest of the books to my must purchase list. I love how knowing more about the storms makes them less scary. There is lots of easy to understand information and great illustrations.
