Listen to the Rain (Hardcover)
Henry Holt & Company, 9780805006827, 32pp.
Publication Date: November 15, 1988
Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault evoke the beauty and the mystery, and the sounds and the silences-- of rain.
"Listen to the rain, "
"the whisper of the rain, "
"the slow soft sprinkle, "
"the drip-drop tinkle, "
"the first wet whisper of the rain."
Their marvelous ear for the melodies and rhythm of language, combined with James Endicott's spare, almost abstract paintings, have created a lyrical book with a haunting power-- perfect for reading aloud on a rainy day.
An NCTE Notable Trade Book for the Language Arts.
