Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

reS-A delightful book with two words of rhyming text per page that celebrates rain while counting animals from 1 to 10-"6 Rabbits hurry/7 Ducklings scurry"-and ending with "10 Ponies prance/Rain dance!" Bright and bold illustrations depict expressive animals on double-page spreads, adding to the book's jovial nature. An ideal read-aloud that promotes counting and animal recognition, the book is perfect for children to explore on their own as well.

From Booklist

Ages 2-6. As rain begins to fall, "1 froggie hops, 2 spiders skitter, 3 chickies flitter," and so on, until "10 ponies prance" in an exuberant "Rain dance!" Chollat's large, stylized, but easily recognizable animals sashay across the pages, accompanied by just a number and two words per spread. Toddlers will enjoy identifying the dancers and listening to the effervescent verbal rhythm, while the vocabulary, which ranges from "piggies" and "puppies" to "calves" and "ducklings," provides pleasant challenges to new readers. The middling-heavy paper stock should survive the repeated readings that this simple invitation to get up and boogie will engender. John Peters
