The Lovereading4Kids comment

A delightful story featuring a family day out into the countryside. On their way they pass through fields full of flowers, grasshoppers and bees. They stop at a farm, where they feed the hens, pigs and ponies. But when they reach the pond, the clouds turn grey and it starts to rain. The twins love splashing about in the rain. But where do all the animals go when it rains? This is a wonderfully detailed picture book, with a variety of animals to spot, which will be enjoyed time and time again.


Where Do They Go When it Rains? by Gerda Muller


'A charming book that looks at a variety of animals and how they take shelter from the rain' --Family Interest, March/April 2010 'Young children love nature and this beautifully illustrated book gives plenty of oppurtunity for spotting wildlife of all kind... This book is not only lovely to look at, but gives scope for some interesting discussions about nature'

/April 2010 'Full of fun, detail and optimisim, this book encourages simple observation of nature by watching, walking and sensing -- or perhaps by just jolting the reader to get out and about!

'The detailed illustrations teach children about what happens when the weather closes in!'

'A lovely story to share with older pre-school children and those in their first year at school ... this is a fresh and colourful presentation of the answer to an age-old question. Don't forget to look at the end-papers.'

'A lovely book for your spring basket with lots of details to spot.'

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Sam Harper – age 10

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
