&nbsp*"Altogether delightful."&nbsp- Kirkus Reviews, &nbspstarred review
One rainy day in the city, an eager little boy exclaims, "Rain!" Across town a grumpy man grumbles, "Rain." In this endearing book, now in board book format, a rainy-day cityscape comes to life in vibrant, cut-paper-style artwork. The boy in his green frog hat splashes in puddles-"Hoppy, hoppy, hoppy!"-while the old man curses the "dang puddles." Can the boy's natural exuberance (and perhaps a cookie) cheer up the grouchy gentleman and turn the day around?

Editorial Reviews

Altogether delightful." - Kirkus, starred review "Good and bad moods alike can be contagious, as this rainy-day story handily demonstrates." - Publishers Weekly "This will be ideal to share in late winter when everyone is suffering from the winter blues and needs a reminder to make the most of the gloom and gray." - School Library Journal "Two very different attitudes about the weather go head-to-head in Linda Ashman's buoyant Rain!" - New York Times Book Review "
