Great read for young children scared of storms!

Franklin doesn't want to go out and play with his friends because he see's the clouds moving in the sky and a storm coming. Franklin is scared of storms, especially of the lighting and thunder that the storm brings, but his friend Fox convinces him to come over and play. When lightening strikes, thunder booms, and the power goes out Franklin hides in his shell, refusing to come out and play with his friends. But once his friends start making up fun stories about where the thunder and lightening come from Franklin finally comes out of his shell to play with his friends.

Franklin and the Thunderstorm is a great read for young children. It held the attention of my six year old the entire time and my three year old up to the very end. As a parent I loved the lessons that were ingrained into the story about not playing around tall objects while it's lightening and the lesson of how lightening is created. Being scared of storms themselves I thought that this was a great book for my children to help quell their fears a little bit and added a fun twist to a potentially frightening event.

We really like Franklin so we thought this would be a good book. The story is great, as to be expected, but the formatting was less than desirable. The words are on a simple gray background and the pictures are very small. They do not correspond to the story. It's not very neat or attractive. I'm wondering if this is why B&N chose not to include a screen shot or sample. Someone commented that their audio was very low. Ours does not have a read to me feature. I would recommend saving your money and buying the actual book through scholastic.
