KatrinaGermein’s poetry makes for a great read aloud, she really captures the feeling of a summery thunderstorm. Readings
Germein has gifted us with lyrical prose carefully constructed to create tension. Each word contributes to the intense drama of an approaching storm, and yet this is all language kids will understand and relate to. What fun they will have using words like “flicking and flashing – tricking and dashing – crackling zap! – sizzling snap!” Susan Stephenson, The Book Chook
