"This is such a sweet and impactful story about finding one’s voice. When we take leadership in our lives, we encourage others to do the same. It is so imperative to teach our young people to speak truth to power. This story does just that in a simple and touching way." Katherine Kendall 


"Pika Bunny and the Thunderstorm is a beautiful book. Where else can you learn Spanish and at the same time learn how to deal with a universal problem, fear? With tenderness, colorful artwork, and a timeless topic, all of us can benefit from a few warm moments of reading this delightful book."  Marla DeLong

This beautiful tale will be a new bedtime favorite.

I enjoyed traveling through this sweet story with Pika Bunny while his mother comforted his fears. Wendy Gilhula's beautiful tale describes how thunderstorms are nature's way of providing for all of us in the animal world. Adrianna Allegretti's enchanting illustrations will captivate the imagination and attention of little ones and allay their fears.

Instant favorite!! Love the simple message of this book! The story is heartwarming and illustrations are rich and full of surprises!
