A sweet story of a father and daughter's cozy day together as they wait for a storm to pass

When rain interrupts their outdoor play, a girl and her father retreat indoors to wait out the storm. As lightning cracks and thunder booms, they each have their own ideas of things they can do together on a rainy day.

Told through spare text and bold sound effects, Sarah LuAnn Perkins' unique linocut-like textured illustrations create a fun read-aloud experience for both reader and listener.


Praise For On a Rainy Day

"A sonically rich story that captures the simple joys of rainy days at home." --Kirkus Reviews

"This is a tale both about the weather and about weathering disappointment. The joyful puddle-jumping “FWOOSH!” that ends the book should have preschoolers looking forward to rainy days." --The Horn Book
