5.0 out of 5 stars a beautiful, dreamy fable, June 13, 2009
This review is from: The Happy Rain (Hardcover)
we got this for my kids and their cousin before we moved to seattle, and it turned out to be an incredibly sweet and appropriate book for that move. in the town in the book, it's always rainy, and the people love it. they're startled and afraid when the rains suddenly stop and try all kinds of crazy measures suggested by all kinds of "experts" to get the rain to start. in the end, it is the children who suggest addressing the clouds directly and asking for rain, rather than trying to manipulate them into raining. it reads to me like a parable of joy in nature and weather, and the moral seems to be forthrightness and honesty. we talk a lot to our kids about asking for what they want and need directly instead of trying to make people do what they want through manipulation---which usually others don't understand and resent. the whole story feels dreamy and joyful.
