From Booklist:

Gr. 4-6. Ben's hay harvest is not yet in the barn, and he can tell there's a storm coming. But Ben is not the only one concerned with the weather. So are a fox, a weather satellite, airline passengers, and Ben's neighbors, all of which are considered in this reconstruction of a day's events. Although catalogued as fiction and suspenseful at times, the book is really intended to convey factual information about weather processes and forecasting. A cover-to-cover reading to unearth the information will be required, but this will still be helpful to independent students researching weather projects. Wijngaard's large-scale watercolors make the sky and the landscape major characters. Strong not only on how weather works, but also on why that matters. Mary Harris Veeder

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5?The development of a thunderstorm is chronicled as a farmer, his wife, a fox, and a hawk prepare for it. Both text and illustrations provide vivid images of these natural phenomena. Wijngaard's exquisite watercolors dramatically portray the sequence of the storm's approach, full fury, and passing. It will take several readings to grasp all of the weather-related information in the descriptive text. At each reading, appreciation for the realistic illustrations will grow. This book is a fine example of how effectively a fictional account can be used to strengthen the presentation of a science topic for young readers.?Carolyn Angus, The Claremont Graduate School, CA
