Description

Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault evoke the beauty and the mystery, and the sounds and the silences-- of rain.

Listen to the rain, the whisper of the rain, the slow soft sprinkle, the drip-drop tinkle, the first wet whisper of the rain.

Their marvelous ear for the melodies and rhythm of language, combined with James Endicott's spare, almost abstract paintings, have created a lyrical book with a haunting power-- perfect for reading aloud on a rainy day.

An NCTE Notable Trade Book for the Language Arts.
