A reassuring story about the love between parent and child.

“When the clouds grow darker and the rain pelts and stings, I'm here, my little duck. Keep warm beside my wings.”

In this comforting read-aloud story, all the animals find cozy places to keep them safe and warm, no matter how loud the storm rumbles or how dark the night gets. Next to their mothers, the baby animals are able to let go of their fears and fall asleep despite the storm.

Safe in a Storm is a fun, imaginative good-night story featuring loving animal characters. It'll comfort young children during scary storms and always.
