What would your ideal home be?
What would you do if a storm came and destroyed it all?
For the boy in this book, his home was more than just a building. It was a place that took his whole life to build, and it made him feel safe and secure. When he was inside his home the world made sense. Then the storm came like a monster, and devoured it all.
Why do these things happen?
The storms in our lives can take on different shapes like sickness, death, divorce, or many other forms of loss or change. When they come, they have the power to tear our homes apart and leave us feeling scared and alone. The good news is that with a little understanding and courage, we can find the value in the storms of life. One day you may even look at the chaos and say, ‘thank you’.
You are invited to go deep into the concepts of this imaginatively illustrated book and talk about it with those you love. Sooner or later we will all encounter our own storms, and being able to see the value in the destruction, may be the only thing that helps us through.
With the boy as our guide, learn that no storm lasts forever, and even behind the darkest clouds, the sun still shines.
