Mommy Read It Again: Rain! by Linda Ashman, Illustrated by Christian Robinson


Rain!
by Linda Ashman (Author) and Christian Robinson (Illustrator)

What a gorgeous book! I spotted this on someone’s website (unfortunately I lost the link), and just had to request it from the library. The story compares a rainy day from the viewpoint of a grumpy old man and a hoppy young boy. Preschooler Monkey says, “I like this book because there was a grumpy man who became happy at the end!” But also says, “I thought this would be a girl, but it was a boy instead.” Oh well. The illustrations are so joyful that they leap off the page, and the spare text is perfectly done. Ribbit! (Note: All puns are absolutely intended.)
