Editorial Reviews

White clouds freckle the blue sky. Darkness and showers move in. Carried away by the wind, the storm passes and reveals the sunset. Night begins with the soft moonlight. The sky is at peace. In her expression of love for rainstorms, White effortlessly captures an ordinary day with a few, carefully-selected words. The wonder of a nature is illuminated by velvety alliteration and rhyme, leaving readers young and old longing to hear the simplicity of a cloudburst captured on paper once again. Readers will be in awe of the detail residing in Krommes’ rainbow of scratchboard and watercolor illustrations. Her stunning and meticulous visuals fully complement the text. Jump inside the pages, take a good look around, and visit the family, farm, and animals which dwell within. This book is a composition of lyrics and art best read aloud.
