The Rhino who Swallowed a Storm tells the story of a baby mouse who’s afraid of the storm outside because the family had lost their house in a storm a year ago. The papa mouse tells them a story about a brave little rhino who’s able to get through something similar with the help of friends, family, compassion, and love.

The end of the book has a bunch of questions that you can ask the child in your life to help them relate to the story, which makes the book an especially useful healing tool. So go check it out!
