As they play outside on a rainy summer day, a little girl and her dog listen to the rain talk. In an onomatopoeic text and joyful watercolor illustrations, the special pleasures of a rainy day come vividly to life. Rain or shine, children will delight in this new, highly original book by the author-illustrator team of Who Said Red?

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- The various sounds that the rain makes are explored in this poetic picture book. A young child hears the "first fat raindrops" fall on "the soft summer dust of a country road." She sees the tiny holes the drops make, and smells the wet dust. As the storm progresses, the text fine tunes readers' ears to the different sounds of rain on umbrellas, ponds, roofs, and highways. Such vivid sensory images have immediate appeal for even the youngest read-aloud audience. Equally appealing are the watercolor illustrations that follow the young girl and her dog on their rainy-day wanderings that eventually lead to home, supper, and bed. Bright yellow and green dominate the pages, providing the perfect backdrop for the brown-limbed girl in her red galoshes and flowered dress. The freedom, joy, and warmth of the illustrations make this book a pure delight. A perfect rainy-day read-aloud that will be hard to keep on the shelf. --Carolyn Polese, Gateway Community School, Arcata, CA

From Publishers Weekly:

Unlike Serfozo and Narahashi's previous collaborations ( Who Said Red? ; Who Wants One? ), this gentle picture book forgoes lilting rhythms and rhymes in favor of a prose-like text brimming with onomatopoeic sounds. A girl and her black dog walk through the rain, listening as the drops ping on an old tin roof, hiss on the highway and "Bup Bup Bup Bup" on their umbrella. "Listen to the / PlopPlipPlipPlipPlipPlip / as it speckles the smooth surface of the pond. / To mother Duck / that says, / "Time to go for a swim." They curl up before a fire, go to sleep, and awaken the next morning to find a rainbow. Although the text strains to stretch this slight concept to 32 pages, Narahashi's bright, appealing watercolors capture the wonder of "silvery slants of rain." Ages 4-8.
