Children get scared every time the dark skies roar and grumble, and they jump into their parents' beds in The Sky Monster Grumbles by Regina Puckett. The rumble leaves children quivering with the covers pulled over their heads, and sometimes they shiver and cry. The children have been told that the sound is being made by a monster hiding in the sky. Someone has even seen a beast chasing a rain cloud and it is his thundering howls that are so loud. It is also said that the monster's eyes shoot out the rain. Then if it is a monster, where does he go when the clouds disappear? What is it that actually causes the fearsome rumbles?

This is a wonderful story to help children understand thunder and lightning and get rid of their fears during a thunderstorm. Once they read the book, children will sleep well knowing that there are no monsters in the sky or underneath their beds during thunderstorms. The illustrations by the author are as charming as the story and they give clarity to what the author is trying to convey. This beautiful story is good for bedtime storytelling and can be read out in classrooms and school libraries to help children understand lightning and thunder in a very interesting way. Books like this make education and learning fun and interesting, and reading this book is the perfect way to learn about lightning and thunder.
