From the publisher:

When thunder roars and lightning flashes, Raccoon is afraid to be alone in his home. So he hurries out to see if any of his neighbors in Thistle Hollow have room to spare for a friend in need. When Raccoon knocks on the doors of Possum, Quail, and Woodchuck, he is turned away. But then Raccoon spies a bright light in the storm. Will this next neighbor open up her house and heart to Raccoon? A tender story that reminds readers of all ages that a kind heart will always make room for one more.

May I Come In, written by Marsha Diane Arnold and illustrated by Jennie Poh, is the perfect rainy day read! For little ones scared of storms, or others looking for a lesson on friendship, this story relates to children on multiple levels. The illustrations capture the darkness of a wild storm, while also showing the warmth of friendship and a dry place to stay. With some repetitive verse and onomatopoeia, this one is sure to be a hit as a read aloud.

5 stars for rainy days and real friends.
