    Terrible Storm, written by Carol Otis Hurst and illustrated by S.D Schindler, is a story of two older men and a storm that forced them indoors and eventually caused them to meet This book is most appropriate for kids in kindergarten and first grade and does not have any sort of awards The book starts with the two old men talking about the worst storm they ever ran into when they were younger They were in very inconvenient spots when the storm started and had to take shelter The pages start to split in terms of their perspectives, as they take refuge in two different kinds of safe havens One is in a nice house with a happy family who happily feeds their new stranger, while the other man is in a barn with a cat and a horse waiting for the storm Even though they were in two different spots they were both in situations they weren t fond of When they are able to start digging their way out they cross path and then find their way home, revealing that they live in the situations that the other was trapped in The book ends with them two men on a porch together similar to the beginning This is a great story that does something not many other children s books do, show to different perspectives in a juxtaposition style This interesting and quirky style of illustration really contributes to the story in an excellent way It can teach children the idea of separate perspectives and they can become intertwined Th...

    This is one of those picture books that tells a good portion of the story only through the pictures I love that The pictures are colorful, interesting, and fun The story is very realistic and I could easily see such a conversation happening between my own grandfathers.

    Cute story Slightly low word count illustration balance The story is being told by two different gentleman at the same time This is a little hard to read to a group but is easy to follow by the preschoolers one on one in your lap as you can talk about the back and forth.

    I enjoyed these two personalities and how the book addressed them It went over the heads of my kids 6yrs to 3yrs but they enjoyed the pictures and the silly voices I used to narrate from the standpoint of two old men.
