Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

PreS-K. In a story just right for young learners, Lewison adds bounce and freshness to a review of numbers. A little girl in a shiny red raincoat and green boots searches for the silver lining and catalogs the many things she encounters along the way. As she travels across the pages, the text counts up to 10 ("One little raindrop, / dark, dark sky. / Two little raindrops, / clouds go by") and back down again after she arrives home (""Ten little toes / in a nice warm tub. / Nine soapy bubbles, / scrub-a-dub-dub!"). The narrative is spare, simple, and rhythmic--easy for young listeners to commit to memory and "read" aloud--and Paparone's cheerful, boldly colored artwork will keep the rainy-day doldrums at bay. A bright pick-me-up for a soggy afternoon. Terry Glover

I usually restrict my purchases to the most classic, well-loved children's books, but when I saw this one, I couldn't resist, and I love it already, and am sure that children will, too.

The book follows a little girl through all the cozy pleasures of a rainy day like puddles, a raincoat and hat, soaking in a nice warm tub, cocoa with marshmallows... all with bright, beautiful illustrations, and a counting lesson to boot! I've always loved and appreciated the coziness of rainy days, and with this perfect book, I'll be able to share that feeling with my children. I can't wait!

My daughter is 18 months and will sit several times a day for a half hour at a time with this book. The illustrations are colorful. The prose has great rhythm to it as well. She loves to pick out all of the animals in the story. The book counts up to 10 and back down, following a little girl and her dog through a rainy day.

Format: Hardcover
The State of Tennessee sends a book each month to every young child in the state who is signed up for the program. This book was the selection for, I think, December 2006. Of the several dozen books on my 17-month-old's bookshelf, this is one of three he routinely picks out to be read to him before bedtime. It is beautifully illustrated, and a pleasure to read aloud, even for someone who doesn't particularly enjoy reading aloud, like myself. I've never reviewed a childrens book, but I liked this one so much, that I felt the need to chime in with a few words of praise for the author and illustrator.

We received this book as a gift initially and now I frequently give it as a gift. It has a simple story with numbers in a rhyme- perfect for 1 and 2 year olds. We read it so often that all of us (and the grandparents) have it memorized.

Format: Hardcover
This counting book counts raindrops up from one to ten then other objects down ten to one. Counting backwards may be difficult for many, but the illustrations will allow the students to count up and verify the numbers on each page. Students excelling at counting and ready for the counting backwards challenge will really enjoy it.

My daughter (20 months) and I read this book everyday. Usually about 3 times! I love the illustrations. They really make you feel all warm and happy when you're reading and pointing out all the different things in the pictures. I highly recommend this book.

Great book to introduce your preschooler into reading. It repeats the same phrase through out the story. And it's perfect story for April.
