Little Blue and his friends take shelter from the storm, in the barn where it's nice and warm. When the storm has finally passed, it's time to go to bed at last. Both of my kids had so much fun saying good night to everyone. So cute, with lots of fun rhymes. It's a great story for bedtime. Recommended By Rose H., Powells.com
