When lightning strikes
You know the old saying that when you see lightning, you should count how long it takes to hear thunder. The longer it takes for you to hear thunder, the farther away the lightning is.
Author Kevin McNamee has written Lightning Strikes with just that in mind. A little boy is getting ready for bed, but when lightning strikes, he counts down from ten. The rhyming adventure starts with excitement...
Lightning strikes, I count to eight.
It's so much fun. This storm is great!
But as the countdown gets lower, the little boy's worries grow.
Lightning strikes, I count to six.
And wish I wasn't in this fix.
The little boy dives under his bed and when his mom and dad pop in to check on him, they dive underneath the bed, too. But who are the ones who are scared?
Preschoolers will enjoy the repetition and rhyme in this story, sure to get your little ones counting the next time a storm nears.
