Life is full of storms that come and go. We get to choose how we weather them. In this whimsical tale, Rusty the Ranch Horse dances in his pasture in a storm instead of going in the warm, dry barn. This award-winning story is full of metaphors about how storms sound, look, feel, and smell, along with a fun to find meadowlark on every page. Rusty will capture your heart as he teaches to live in the moment, pause for blessings, and dance in the storms of life. The bold watercolor illustrations along with the rhyming words were created way out west by a mother and daughter team in collaboration with Rusty.
