How many ways can you have fun on a rainy day? From one little raindrop to ten toes soaking in a warm bubble bath, there are lots of things to see and count until the sun comes out again. In between, there are silly boots to pull on and puddles to splash in and a rainy backyard just waiting to be explored. A spirited rhyming text that's ideal for reading unexpected pleasures that a little wet weather can bring to a young child's day.
Reeve Lindbergh, daughter of aviator Charles Lindbergh and poet Anne Morrow Lindbergh, first learned about Bessie Coleman in 1986, the 60th anniversary of her father's famous flight. ""Bessie was an incredibly brave person who was hardly noticed, while my parents got so much publicity it was difficult for them to live their normal lives. I saw a crazy imbalance and wanted to try to set things right."" Reeve Lindbergh lives in Vermont.
Pamela Paparone observes that NOBODY OWNS THE SKY is ""about making dreams come true. My own dream has always been to be a children's book illustrator. In fact, I was ten years old when I created my first children's book. I dedicated it to Johnny Cash."" Pamela Paparone lives in Pennsylvania.
