The farmer sounds the alarm to his animals that a storm is coming. The rest of the story has the animals anxiously running around trying to make sure every animal knows about the storm--whatever that is?
This book is a very cute and clever book about a bunch of barnyard animals mistaking the incoming storm for a monster by the name of Storm. The farmer herds them all into the barn to keep them safe, yelling, "Storm is coming!" all the while. Once in the barn, the animals' noise woke the cat, who demanded to know who 'Storm' was supposed to be. The animals didn't know, and the cat went back to sleep.

For the rest of the day the duck peers out the window and announces what's happening to the outsid...more

A cute tale of a misunderstood definition of a storm by the farm animals. The illustrations were colorful and cute. By the end of the book the reader finally figures out the definition of storm through the misunderstanding of the animals and the farmer coming to get them after the storm has passed.

If you need a new children's book, GO FIND THIS ONE! I picked this up at one of those book fairs and I love it so much that I secretly pull it out when the kids aren't around and read it to myself, even reenacting the bleating sheep. Weird? Maybe. It's funny how every single time I open this to read it I think, "Why didn't I think of this?" It's a novel idea, so simple, yet soooooo entertaining. I guarantee that you and your sweet little ones will truly enjoy this story. If you have a child who...more
I came across a book recently that I really liked. It's called Storm is Coming by Heather Tekavec. The story is about a farmer gathering his animals together into the barn because a storm is coming. The animals do not understand what "storm" is, but are scared because the farmer seems scared. Lots of reds, oranges, and yellows are used throughout the book, giving a sense of the high energy of the frantic animals. The text adds some humor to the story that would be missed by viewing the pictures...more
When the old farmer heard the storm warnings, he hurried to gather all his animals into the barn. The animals were frightened. The farmer had said "Storm" was coming. Who is "Storm"? He must be an awful creature if they had to hide from him. When the wind and rain come, the animals are happy -- the thunder and lightning are chasing away "Storm"!

Full color pastel illustrations bring energy and life to this fun picture book for ages 2-6.
Very cute pictures and I love how when the sheep talk, the vowels are drawn out to mimic their baa-ing. Cute play on words when the farmer tells the dog to round up all the animals into the barn because storm is coming, and they think it's a person. Predictable, of course, but it's a kid's book! Cute. Another one my son listens to on CD. Read it to my toddler this evening.
Very enjoyable book. A storm is coming and all the farm animals are gathered in the barn, awaiting a visitor named Storm. They think storm is a person, and they are afraid of it. So, they chear on the stormy weather, because the weather will keep them hidden from "Storm".

The dog ran around the farm to go get the animals for the barn. The animals were then protected from the strom. I would use this in a classroom to help show the students how to protect their friends.

This story is about how animals may see a storm. They all go to the barn and wait for Storm (who they think is a person). As the storm passes they do not understand. A fun story to use expression.

A cute picture book about animals on a farm who are scared of a storm that's approaching. A co-worker told me her 2-year-old granddaughter loves this book.
