Raindrop, Plop! Hardcover – March 8, 2004
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

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
