When thunder shakes his house and rain pounds the windows, Bear is frightened. But comforting his Mama, Papa and Floppy helps make the storm seem not as scary. Before Bear knows it, the storm has passed, because even storms need their sleep ... and so do bears.

A hugely heartwarming tale about the fear of thunder and how to overcome it.

The Review: Stormy Night is a cute story about a bear that is frightened of a storm but, soon finds himself comforting his toy rabbit and parents too by singing the song his mother sung to him when he was a little cub.

We loved Stormy Night. It’s a great read – one that many children will be able to connect to because most will find themselves in the same predicament – and like us, we have been in this same situation. It’s a very realistic story but one that’s very sweet and enjoyable to read.

My daughter and I have read it several times since we received the book and it’s definitely a favourite at the moment. We love the illustrations to the story which are bright, bold and very colourful. And while the book has 40 pages it is a very quick read because each page on has a few words on – which is perfect for little ones who like short stories.

In all, Stormy Night is a big hit in our house and I’ll be definitely keeping an eye out for more stories by Salina Yoon.

Thank you to Bloomsbury Books for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.
