Who Likes Rain? Hardcover – April 3, 2007
It's time to put on your rain gear for a rainy-day romp!
With spring come April showers. It's time to put on a raincoat, grab an umbrella, and head outdoors. The worms like rain, and so do the fish and frogs. But what about the cat and dog? In this lyrical picture book, one spunky little girl discovers just who likes rain--and who doesn't--as she explores the rainy-day habits of the world around her.
Here is the second offering in Wong Herbert Yee's charming seasonal quartet. The simple text and interactive question-and-answer format make this book perfect for reading aloud with preschoolers any time of the year.
Who Likes Rain? is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Although the colors of the illustrations are a bit muted, they are colorful and enjoyable to look at. The author asks a question and the answer is a surprise on the next page in an illustrated "window." For instance, you read: "Who likes rain? Quack quack." And on the next page is the picture of a duck with the words, "It's a duck!"
This book is a wonderful story of exploration and the weather for the littlest ones. There are plenty of sounds for a fun read-a-loud. It put many smiles on my face.
Not only are the illustrations nice, the rhyming fun but there is also a little game of guess the animal by the sound it makes. This is a cute book for young children.
And it helps to remind us adults remember a rainy day and all the fun we had exploring jumping in puddles, making little stick dams, catching the rain on our tongues and just listening to the sounds / music the rain makes. Hopefully it will also inspire us to take our little ones out to play in the rain, to explore and to listen to the music the rain makes! Enjoy!!!!
