My Pictures after the Storm

  • Interest Level: Preschool - Kindergarten
  • Reading Level: Grade 1

With its funky format, clever rhymes, and funny images, My Pictures after the Storm is a witty and inventive take on “before” and “after.”

What happens to a lion after a storm? His mane is swept into a disheveled mess. What becomes of a pear after an elephant passes by? Compote! A frog after a spell? A prince. And the room after a battle? A big mess!

My Pictures after the Storm will have you chuckling at the after-effects of a dive bomb, a hairdresser, a flu, and more.
