9780060298050: Rain Romp: Stomping Away a Grouchy Day

On a gray day the heroine of this book feels every bit as grouchy as the cloudy, rainy, windy sky outside her bedroom window. There is no way that her all-too-cheerful Mom and Dad are going to convince her to get out of bed. Or is there?

How do you transform a stormy mood into a sunny one? This clever story holds the secret: a stomping, romping, wild dance that can make you feel like yourself again -- and ready at last for smiles and giggles with the people who really do understand you after all.

About the Author:

Jane Kurtz knows a lot about moving. She was born in Portland, Oregon, but when she was two years old her parents moved their family to Ethiopia to work for the Presbyterian Church there. Jane Kurtz is the author of novels, picture books, and chapter books. After living in North Dakota (where she survived a natural disaster), Colorado, Illinois, and Kansas, she moved back to Portland, Oregon, where she now lives with her husband, the Reverend Leonard L. Goering, H.R.



Dyanna Wolcott is the illustrator of Dog Days: Rhymes Around the Year by Jack Prelutsky and I Am Me by Karla Kuskin. She says that she's often felt just like the girl in Rain Romp, especially since she lives in a small seaport town in the Pacific Northwest where it often rains.

From School Library Journal:

reSchool-Grade 1-It's a gray and dreary day, one that matches the mood of the child in this story as she wakes up one morning. Even her mother's cheerfulness and Dad's "snazzy, jazzy tune" can't shake her from her gloom. Mom describes her as "Mad as a wet hen." But, truth be known, the girl feels even angrier; she and the sky are "-howling prowling scowling wolverines." But when she runs outside into the rain, stamping and stomping, that foul mood begins to melt away. Her parents join her "Raaaaaain romp!" and the storm, both outside and inside, subsides. Back home it's time for games and singing around a warm fire. Wolcott's watercolor-and-gouache illustrations are rendered in rainbow hues. The colors have been allowed to run so that they blend into each other, suggestive of the rain itself. A simple, pleasant story that would pair well with Don Freeman's Rainbow of My Own (Puffin, 1978).
