Product Description

It rains! It rains all over town, pattering congenially on windowpanes and rooftops. From indoors, a child watches, listens, and feels a delicious coziness. It rains on the fields, the hills, the ponds. The streams and brooks, the rivers and seas, surge and swell exuberantly. Tomorrow there will be warm mud to play in, and puddles, and in the puddles "pieces of sky." It pours.

This picture book by the winner of the 1969 Caldecott Medal is a lyrical celebration of rain's inspiring effect on Mother Nature--on human nature, too. Its few words and panoramic pictures are buoyant with growth and f reshness.

Rain Rain Rivers is a 1969 New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of the Year and Outstanding Book of the Year. Ages 4-8. Preschool - Grade 3. Lexile Measure: 140L. 32 pages.

Editorial Reviews

“A child listens to the sound of rain, imagines various places where the rain is falling, and anticipates the plant growth and puddle play that will follow...The pictures all emphasize the nurturing, miraculous, and temporary qualities of a rainfall.” —Starred, School Library Journal
