The Big Storm

A Very Soggy Counting Book

Dark Black clouds start to gather. The wind begins to blow. A storm is coming! Count from 1 to 10 as Bird, Mouse, Rabbit, and their friends take shelter in a cozy hollow. The animals are safe for the night, but who else is hiding in the cave with them?

10 critters huddled together,

tight and snug while

the clouds gathered.

The wind blew.

The leaves swirled.

The lightning cracked.

The rain fell and

the thunder rumbled

and grumbled...

all night long.
