  • This book has some ups and downs in my opinion The book is about Thomas and his grandfather having a story time due to a storm that cuts out the electricity Thomas is a little boy who wants to hear about his grandfather life when he was about the same age as Thomas Grandfather being the smart man that he is told Thomas a story about a time when he was scared He does so to get Thomas to express his true feelings about the storm I like this book because it s very realistic and the lesson behind it [...]


  • The illustrations in this photo are deep dark colors that create a soft tone This story takes place at night where Thomas and his grandfather hang around the house on a rainy night Each picture is tinted with blue to create a cool setting, and to represent nighttime This book is interesting because the illustrations don t show the grandfathers face Every image shows the significant difference in the proportion between the grandfather and Thomas.



  • I loved the story of this book, grandfather and grandson bonding over a story during a storm As a future teacher, I would use this book to read to my students to represent a Coretta Scott King award winning book and the beautiful illustrations.


  • Grandfather and young Thomas are alone in their darkened house, and the power outage prevents them from engaging in any of their ordinary diversions Without the use of their vision, their other senses are sharpened, and the sounds and smells of their home and community surround them As Thomas gazes out the window at a scene illuminated by moon and lightning, Grandfather remarks, No help for it I shall have to tell you a tale of when I was a boy He then recounts a time when he, at Thomas s age, h [...]


  • A boy and his grandfather are caught in a thunder storm where the power has gone out, and the grandfather tells the boy a story about his being caught in a similar storm when he was a kid It s a simple story accompanied by wonderful illustrations that show the low light atmosphere extremely well, both of the current time and in a flashback to the story I m curious why this is the book that came out of these characters Yes, there seems to be a nice little message for children that it s okay to be [...]


  • Both the pictures and the content of this book show delicate handling of every day issues The promised story by grandpa at the beginning of the book does not start until much closer to the end Here the journey counts, not the destination During the journey we learn about relationships of the people and the animal, the weather, a thunderstorm, and the choice of words for each of the two humans.


  • A storm, a power outage, and an evening shared between a grandfather and his grandson Family, fears, and a feline all contribute to the events of the evening Well told, warmly illustrated an a beautiful picture book This story could be used in a classroom to teach about family, weather, and emotions.


  • It felt a bit tedious to get through There were some good moments, like the grandson pointing out how he could hear and smell better in the dark, but I m not sure if I could keep the attention of a classroom with it Still, it s good to have if you re talking about rain, and features African American characters which we always need of in our children s lit.


  • It was a dark thunderstorm night and rain was beating against the house What could Thomas and his grandfather do on a night like this Thomas asked many questions about grandfather s boyhood Though they were different generations, their human ness was the blue print that connected them Thomas realized he and grandfather was a boy liked him They talked through the storm.


  • Confronting our fears in this case, of storm and darkness is the theme of this beautifully illustrated story of a grandfather, his grandson, and their cat during a power outage Read it for the artful telling read it for the fabulous ilustrations.


  • Confronting our fears can be tough, but in the case of this book the fear is of storms and darkness This book can be used as an introduction to a science lesson on weather It could also be used to help students sequence the events of a story.


  • This is a good story of honesty and overcoming fear with fun dialogue between a grandfather and grandson The illustrations with the dark backdrop of the lights being out power outage are great especially the beautiful, shiny white cat


  • The illustrations are great in this book The book could be used to discuss weather patterns, particularly, storms.






  • A good example as a mentor text for a personal narrative Also, the book is rich in non literal language.


  • Storm in the Night was an interesting read The authors great use of literary devices made the read exciting and a great teaching tool.



  • Cute book The story arc is kind of interesting and really choppy But it does make it seem like a natural conversation But reading wise it is hard to follow
