Rain Play,by Cynthia Cotten, illustrated by Javaka Steptoe (ages 3-6)
Tip-toe through the puddles, make a boat that floats, then run, romp, splash and stomp. In colorful collage illustrations, Rain Play brings to life all the fun that young ones can have when the drizzle starts. But beware, when the sky starts to flash and thunder boom starts to boom it’s time to get snug inside where you are warm and dry. A perfect book to read to your little one when the day is dreary.
