This book can be used for a lesson on how an event can cause a chain reaction of events. ( )

This was a very funny story about how the rain causes chaos in a town. When the rain started that’s when the chickens started squawking which made the cats and dogs start going crazy which then made the man yell and wake up the baby and then it goes down hill from there. The whole town is in chaos because of the rain. It is one thing after another after another and when the rain finally stops, the town goes back to normal. Everyone is helping one another clean up the mess from the chaos and the town is back to normal. This was a very funny story to read to children for giggles. I love the illustration the author uses and how colorful his books are. He is on my list for favorite authors. I cannot wait to read some of his books to my own students. ( )

I enjoyed reading this book. From the start, it was raining, and the chickens made the cat yowl, and the cat made the dog bark, and the dog made the man yell, and the man made the baby cry, and so on. The entire town starts bickering and yelling at each other, while it was still raining. Then suddenly, the rain stopped. Everyone stopped fussing at one another and decided to help each other out and go on with their days, happily. I like that the rain was used to make everyone unhappy, and as soon as the rain stopped, the entire town was happy again. ( )

This is a fun story of a boy named David, he encounters many problems down the rain but at the end, he finds a sense of peace. Children in my classroom would love this book and relate to each part of the story. I would use for 1rt and 2nd grades.
