Stay Through the Storm is a lovely book about the power of friendship and togetherness, especially when times are difficult. On the literal level, it gives young readers ways to cope with the storm outside, while using the storm as a metaphor for tumultuous times that people may endure. And the illustrations are warm, inviting, and so very charming! Rowland has a way of making difficult topics digestible for young readers. --JaNay Brown-Wood, author of Imani's Moon
