It’s a hot summer afternoon. Nothing is stirring. Not the frogs, not the flowers, not even the grass. Then suddenly birds are flocking overhead. Small animals are racing for shelter. The rain starts pouring down. Thunder booms. Lightning cracks and flashes. Mick, Mack, and Molly are caught in the midst of one of the most exciting moments of summer: a sudden summer thunderstorm. It can be scary, but for the three squirrel children, safe and dry in a cave, it brings new friends.

Read this book on August 5th. It was just so-so. Was looking for a book about summer, but this one ended up being more about a summer storm.
Henry said his favorite thing he did this past summer was attending the birthday party of Caroline and the triplets. He loved the obstacle course, eating chocolate bombs, wearing a green cape and mask he decorated, and dressing like Green Lantern.

Summer fun is interrupted by a sudden storm, bringing surprise, fear, and anxiety to some playful woodland creatures. But as quickly as it begins, it ends bringing a cleansing and leaving behind new friends.

July 2016 - like Bedtime in the Forest, the pictures are charming and the text is serviceable. Ben enjoyed it.

This is a great book to use when introducing students to Summer Storms. It is science fiction. It shows an example of helping each other out especially in an emergency. This a great book to talk about why birds leave when there is a storm. This would be a great 2nd grade book.

Adorable art but misleading title - really mostly about a summer storm and while brief, the story and the storm both, there just seems to be loose ends here and there. Not a necc. for HCL.

I know it is almost winter but those darn little squirrels tugged at my heart and I found myself reading about summer. This is an adorable book children will love.

Lovely drawings and cute animals. Kidlet is into mice and squirrels right now so she requests it often even though she often flips through the pages before I can read all the text.
