Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dori Butler
When dark clouds roll in and thunder rumbles, a young girl wants to join the "wind bears" who go dancing past her window. They race around in a rattle-bang car and no one knows how silly they are. This gentle rhyming story is wonderful for children who are easily frightened on stormy nights. It's also a nice bedtime story.
School Library Journal
PreS-KA comforting bedtime story that explains a stormy night to an anxious child. The little girl's mother tells her it's the wind bears dancing, and the child imagines what it would be like to be with them, stepping out on rooftops; rustling leaves; and encountering friendly fish, lions, and tigers. The bled double-page spreads capture all of the nocturnal activity with a flair, from the opening picture of soft white clouds turning into bears, until the last page, where they once again become clouds. The illustrations blend nicely with the rhyming text in presenting a delightful story of a sleepy child's adventures.Denise Furgione, Franklin Township Public Library, NJ
Kirkus Reviews
A rhyme to soften the roar of thunderclouds and the flash of lightning by transforming them. Stone's verse and lush pastel illustrations convert a scary thunderstorm into a dance party of wind bears, lions, tigers, and other creatures. When the bears shake their coats, raindrops fall, and the laughter of tigers makes zigzags of lightning race through the sky. It's a grand hullabaloo, and the little girl who narrates joins in the dancing with glee. When it's all over, the child and wind bears pile into an orange convertible: The bears then curl up in treetops and float away, while the girl goes back to her bedroom, where she observes the storm clouds departing. Stone's woolly cloud creatures will bring comfort to little ones distressed by thunder claps; a striking nighttime palette of purple, deep blue, and orange perfectly counters any sentimentalism in the text.

    I didn't think I'd much like this book -- I never liked dancing

    I didn't think I'd much like this book -- I never liked dancing bears, especially the one on Captain Kangaroo -- but I did find the cover artwork interesting, and I'm a sucker for a signed book, so I picked it up. But I was wrong. I do like this book.
    I think it is such a lovely explanation for a night thunderstorm. There is a lush dream-like quality to the illustrations, and they feature animals playing musical instruments. So much to love!
