Here it comes Cool drops splash down, scattering the grown-ups. But the children love romping in the rain, until "BOOM "
This joyous, rhyming poem captures the many delights of a rainy day.
“The text’s short couplets won’t be a challenge even for newly emergent readers, and the laughing, brown- and yellow-skinned figures dance through the elongated raindrops with infectiously joyous abandon.”
“For kids, a rainy day can be pure play, and this exuberant rhyming poem and buoyant illustrations testify to that.”
“The illustrations make the rainstorm an event. The pictures are so lively that they may inspire readers”
