This easy to read book has predictable and repetitive language. It teaches colors as well as everyday objects. It is a great book for young readers!

This little book is beautifully illustrated and colorful. The "rain" falls as words and each color, object and word is graphically illustrated as part of the landscape on which the rain falls. It's a lovely introduction to reading for a small child. I'd recommend it for toddlers who are beginning to recognize visuals and wanting to start to read. Very imaginative piece of work.

My daughter is using this book now to learn how to read. She enjoys it very much... especially because the coloration of the text to match the images in the picture gives her clues about what the words are.
I think the book is neat from its style (using the word "rain" written on an angle to be the rain) and its vibrant use of colour.

This is a great book to learn about colors and talk about weather. I did an art project with my preschoolers and it turned our great. They wrote they the word rain on their drawings just like the story.

Rain is a wonderful book to get children excited about reading. If they know colors, they can read it! As a reading specialist, I recommend it wholeheartedly.

This is a great book for emerging readers. They can easily master "reading" it independently, and will enjoy the repetition.
