Through analogies of weather patterns, the book describes two days in the chaotic life of David and Mary. Psychoeducational comments are provided throughout the book by a “weather wiz” who explains, in a simple manner, to both the characters and readers, the mother’s sometimes strange behaviors that can be challenging to comprehend. The wonderful illustrations help with the understanding, and lighten the story with humor. This book will help teach children to take some distance, to better understand what is happening at home and how not to feel responsible for Their Parents’ stormy times.
