Dance with me everyone, today is my 265th review which means I’m into the final 100 countdown! Thank you for popping on by, it’s lovely to have a look at my blog stats and see regular visits from as far afield as Japan, Russia and Canda. “Hi everybody!” Feel free to give me a cheeky “Hi” back.
To help you get in the mood, we’ve got the joyful Thunderstorm dancing to enjoy. “Shh. Listen. What can you hear?” A watchful group on the beach look to the horizon where dark clouds gather. The storm builds momentum, bringing with it wind, rain, thunder and lightning. “Poppy is the thunder, stamping and thumping, clapping and bumping, ga-bang and ga-boom, it’s LOUD in this room”.
The illustrations, paired with members of the family who are represented as storm-features, are wonderful.
After dodging downpours all day, reading this delicious story aloud has been the perfect way to unleash a little cabin fever.
