Synopsis

Rain! by Linda Ashman

One rainy day in the city, an eager little boy exclaims, Rain! Across town a grumpy man grumbles, Rain. In this endearing picture book, a rainy-day cityscape comes to life in vibrant, cut-paper-style artwork. The boy in his green frog hat splashes in puddles - Hoppy, hoppy, hoppy! - while the old man curses the dang puddles. Can the boy's natural exuberance (and perhaps a cookie) cheer up the grouchy gentleman and turn the day around?

Reviews

Altogether delightful. --Kirkus, starred review Good and bad moods alike can be contagious, as this rainy-day story handily demonstrates. --Publishers Weekly This will be ideal to share in late winter when everyone is suffering from the winter blues and needs a reminder to make the most of the gloom and gray. --School Library Journal Two very different attitudes about the weather go head-to-head in Linda Ashman's buoyant Rain! --New York Times Book Review
