The idea of this book is terrific - to show the water cycle of Earth, through the travels of a cute, little raindrop. Unfortunately, the book really fails overall though. The raindrop itself and the few animals in the backgrounds of the pictures are cute. But the pictures overall are bland and so is the writing. The book is boring for a child in its target age range and even fails in the end to give the child the overall view and holistic understanding of the water cycle.
