Great book for visualizing with descriptive text. Children will be able create their own picture of what is happening by using their inferences of rainy days. ( )

This has lovely pictures and is so much more than just puddles. The story takes us from when the storm is starting, through the downpours, the puddles and the mud! Kids will easily identify with this story.

All through the night a brother and sister listened to the howling thunderstorm outside. For good reasons, they wished it was over but not over at the same time because they know in the morning there will be plenty of puddles. When they left the house the next morning they had a wonderful adventure from following baby rivers, squishing in mud, watching worms explore the muck, playing leap frog, and jumping in a lot of puddles! Their mother told them not to get wet, but they could just not contain their excitement. They went home took a warm bath, drank hot chocolate only to repeat the process all over again! ( )

Two children romp through this watery world in visual compositions that are strong and satisfying.the magic and physical delight of wading in mud and puddle jumping after a rainstorm. In London's simple, poetic text, a brother and sister "cuddle / between fright / and glee" as they listen to a thunderstorm at night but rush outside the next day to a "sky wiped clean / of the last cloud." Karas translates the children's joyful exploration of the storm's legacy--frogs and worms to watch, mud that sucks at their boots, and puddles in all shapes and sizes--into a series of jubilant double-page paintings that cleverly play with perspective to make every picture a happy surprise. The wonderful picture of chocolate brown mud is truly glorious. A great rainy-day book that will be read and read again, with illustrations perfectly sized for both small-group and lap sharing.
