Hello, Rain! Review

Rain, rain, time to play!

A little girl and her dog find a rainy day is full of adventures and things to do; in fact, the harder it rains the better as the world is transformed into one of streams and waterfalls, puddles, and flowers drinking it in. With their umbrella and colourful raincoats our two heroes splash, dance and explore, the text catching all their excitement in lines that border poetry. Indoors is fun too when thunder and lightening drive them inside, and then they emerge into a glistening world of grassy sweetness under a glorious rainbow. A book that fully celebrates a young child’s joy in the wonders of nature and the natural world.

Hello, Rain! Synopsis

The air is full of waiting. The sky is full of breeze. The trees gust and billow. All before it rains. Rumble, rumble. Distant thunder. Rain is coming, rain is coming. No matter what kind of weather you prefer, Hello, Rain! is a great reminder of the natural beauty all around us.  

From international acclaimed writer Kyo Maclear and printmaker Chris Turnham.
