Originally published in 1946 by Lippincott, with illustrations by Tibor Gergely, this new Meadow Gees Press edition of Karen Jerome's beautifully drawn and colored artwork adds a splendid visual element to a classic and engaging poem written by Nancy Byrd Turner in When It Rained Cats And Dogs. The poem tells the story of a day when it literally rained cats and dogs, each falling harmlessly into the arms of a child. The illustrations realistically capture a variety of breeds while at the same time imparting a cheerful sense of fun. This poem-based picture book is wonderful reading for children and would be a very welcome addition to any school or community library collection.

No one reviewing it mentioned that it is not a complete reprint of Nancy Turner's original. This book may be charming but leaves out some of the best parts. I was excited to be able to give my grandchildren one of my favorite childhood books only to find it a shell of the original. Parents should buy the book because it's a sweet poem, but not if they are nostalgic for the crusty old gentleman, the girl with clingy curls or the woman whose dearest dream is to find kittens and feed them cream.

This is a delightful book to read aloud. My 3 year old gives it the highest compliment: when I finished reading it to him, he said "Read it again". Karen Jerome's paintings are light, lively and delightful!

I don't think I was more than 9 years old when Nancy Byrd Turner gave me a personally-inscribed copy of the original of this classic children's book. Be aware, that while it is a charming tale, the fanciful phenomenon it describes will spark a lot of questions from curious young minds. Among the questions are likely to be concerns expressed for the animals being harmed. Be ready with a charming answer ... perhaps involving magic.
