Rainy Day by Dan Yaccarino


Rainy Day by Dan Yaccarino

Rainy Day is a book about worry and how good it feels to let it go - perfect for kids who are anxious about the weather, their first day at school or making a new friend. Parents and kids know Dan Yaccarino from his prodigious career in children's entertainment, which includes over three dozen books and three hit television shows: Oswald, The Backyardigans and the Emmy winning Willa's Wild Life. Now the ALA and Parent's Choice Award winning author and illustrator has created three brand new board books perfect to get every preschool kid ready for preschool. Meet Bink, Glub-Glub and Clyde three friends and residents of Happy land. Each book in the series follows their adventures and illustrates one of three key emotional concepts - worry, gratitude and sharing to help children with their social and emotional development and ready them for preschool. They are the perfect parables: engaging, entertaining and never smug or sanctimonious.


Yaccarino makes smart use of his limited text his wordless spreads say quite a bit about his characters feelings and his clean, brightly colored cartooning and lightly delivered message will make readers want to spend more time with this trio. Publishers Weekly, starred review
