Rain -- it makes puddles for jumping in, helps birds to clean their feathers and brings out snails and worms. But what is rain? And how does it transform the world around us? With a wonderful sense of movement and color, this unique book in the Exploring the Elements series invites children to explore their world with delight and curiosity. Young readers will open the flaps to find the science of rain and related topics clearly explained. Inside, they will discover why rain falls, what raindrops really look like, why the air smells different after a rain and much more.
