A lovely story with rhymes, perfect for Oregonians! The wonders of a little girl who ask about creatures finding shelter when it rains. An informational fiction and non-fiction book with entertaining facts and activities to do to further extend science concepts related to the rain. Pictures are colorful and made in cartoon art.

What a wonderful book! It talks about how weather works to create rain in a language children can understand. The little girl asks where her kitty went in the rain. Then, the book talks about: where butterflies go and why, the different amounts of rain and what squirrels do in it, little birds, ducks....... I even learned a thing or two that I have wondered about for years, like why worms come out of the ground when it rains (to enjoy squiggling in the rain). This is truly educational and fun!!!!

Thank you Harriet Ziefert, Bridgette Barrager and Eidelweiss for giving me a free book to read and give my honest review. ( )

It's raining and the little girl is looking for her kitty, but she can't find her. The mother suggests they go outside and have a look.
We follow the two on their walk and meet all sorts of animals, squirrels, bugs, butterflies, worms, mama duck and her ducklings. Each time the question is asked "Do they like rain?" and we get the answer straight away, as well as a beautiful illustration on each page and a lovely rhyming story along with it. The book also provides the answer to "What is rain?"
At the end of the story, the sun is back and so is kitty. But where did she hide during the rain? We have to go back through the book to find out and search for a shed, a birdbath etc. An excellent way to engage children with the story and make them go back to the pages and read them again.
The book is also the perfect companion for a rainy day. Kids will be encouraged to go for a walk in the rain and to look where the bugs and squirrels are hiding.
The rhymes will be fun for the younger ones and early readers, the questions and answers are more suitable for children, who already can read their first sentences.

Overall "Where Does Kitty Go in the Rain?" is a book which combines just perfectly fun, facts and pictures children will love to look at.
Highly recommended. ( )
