In the guise of a delightful story, this book teaches kids about keeping safe and staying calm. Underneath A Cow is written by Carol Ann Martin and illustrated by Ben Wood.

Set in a raging storm, it tells the story about the various animals sheltering under a cow.

It’s a motley crew of creatures including a rabbit, dog, chicken and chicks. However, Madge the Cow keeps the animals calm by leading them in a song about the Great Big Terrible Awful Storm.

It’s a gentle way to remind children about the importance of being safe and staying calm during severe weather events or other emergencies.

Underneath A Cow  is published by Omnibus Book for Scholastic. RRP $24.99.  Ages: 4+.
