IT'S RAINING CATS AND DOGS! PIGLETS AND BABY BEARS, TOO! Just the right weather for a girl who wants a pet and just the right book to celebrate a new arrival. Zoe wants a pet more than anything in the whole world. Then on the night before her aunt Ellie’s baby shower, it actually starts raining cats and dogs . . . and ducklings and piglets, too. Or does it? This charming book by a favorite author and illustrator is the perfect gift to celebrate a new arrival—human or otherwise.

Praise For Baby Shower

“This offers so much to look at that children will be turning pages after they know the story by heart. A whole new way to think about baby showers.” —Starred, Booklist

“A fun family read-aloud.” -School Library Journal

“An engaging and ever-so-slightly surreal treatment of an age-old childhood wish.”Kirkus Reviews
