A delightful, rainy day celebration!
I sing a little rain song, a simple song, a plain song, a pitter-patter-tip-tap-on-the-windowpane song. Drip drop, plip plop, pit pat, split splat! Put down your umbrella! Take off your galoshes! It's time to sing and dance in the rain. When one little girl and her adorable dog venture out on a rainy, spring day, the neighborhood joins her and what results is squishy, sloshy, muddy day fun.
Amy Gibson’s simple, whimsical rhymes and New York Times bestselling illustrator Steve Bjorkman’s bright and sweet illustrations create the perfect celebration of nature and friendship in this springtime, anytime rhyme!
Amy is a busy mom of four, and a passionate quilt designer and instructor. She loves mixing traditional piecing elements with bold modern fabrics, and says that for her, quilting feels like coloring- a crisp folded fat quarter is like a brand new crayon, fresh and full of possibility. Her work can be seen in The Denver Art Museum, Fat Quarterly Magazine, Australian Quilter's Companion Magazine, American Patchwork & Quilting, and she was nominated for 2014 Instructor of the Year by the International Association of Creative Arts Professionals. A seasoned Craftsy instructor, Amy is perhaps most well known for her 2012 Craftsy Block of the Month series. Truth be told, she's not quite sure how she manages to find time to sew at all, amidst homeschooling, home renovations, and endless mountains of laundry, but she's pretty sure the secret lies somewhere between an incredibly supportive husband, faith, and good coffee. You can follow along with Amy's adventures in sewing and motherhood on her blog, www.stitcherydickorydock.com.
Steve Bjorkman has illustrated nearly one hundred picture books, including the New York Times bestseller Dirt on My Shirt by Jeff Foxworthy. He has also sold millions of greeting cards through Recycled Paper Greetings with his brother, Carl. Steve lives with his wife in Irvine, California.
