9780689506253: Harry's Stormy Night

All evening the North Wind roared. Harry had never heard such a ferocious wind. Inside his house, it was safe and warm, although the electricity had gone off. How Harry allays his nighttime fears of the boisterous windstorm makes a charming story that is happily reassuring for young readers. Full color.

From Publishers Weekly :

When a winter storm knocks out the power one night, Harry and his family harness their own resources. Mom and Harry make an apple tart in the wood-burning stove, Harry puts on a shadow show and Mom tells stories of her childhood. But when Harry goes to bed, "the branches rattled the windowpane, and the wind howled." Harry finds comfort by reaching out to comfort others: he calms his "scared" teddy bear, and when he hears Baby Tom cry out, he soothes him, too, and falls asleep next to his crib. Although slim in plot, the book is rich in atmosphere. Both Leavy, a British poet making her picture book debut, and the seasoned Utton (Jennifer's Room; The Bible Storybook; both reviewed Feb. 27) capture the blissfully comforting contrast of the loving home and the blustery storm. Utton's watercolors show tenderness and a keen domestic sense (toys are stuffed under the bed, the kitchen counters have just enough clutter); he and the author highlight the memorable components of a familiar experience. Ages 3-7.

From School Library Journal :

PreSchool-Grade 2?High, howling winds tear down the power lines and fill the night with noise, but Harry and his family are snug and happy, gathered around the old-fashioned wood stove, baking an apple tart, making shadow pictures on the wall, and telling stories. At bedtime, however, the storm's roar is a bit scary. When Harry hears his baby brother crying, though, he forgets his own fears and goes into the nursery to soothe little Tom back to sleep. The simple text has a lilting rhythm and shifts moods effectively, using vivid action words for the boisterous wind and warm, cozy ones to describe the love, comfort, and safety inside the house. The sweet story is enhanced by softly glowing watercolors, mostly one-and-a-half page spreads, filled with the reassuring, rounded shapes of people, furniture, and toys to counterbalance the zigzagging tree limbs and flying leaves outside.?Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
