    My Review: Award-winning children’s author, Mayra Calvani

    My Review: Award-winning children’s author, Mayra Calvani latest picture book is about how the water droplets form and turn into rain and drops over the farms, houses, schools and how they fill the side walk with puddles. People can get wet and children love to play in the rain.

    The raindrops can get heavy to cause downpour or turn into a flood. The rain can be collected into a reservoir where a filter cleans it and it’s ready to drink through taps.

    Children would learn that during the summer when it is very cold inside the cloud, hail may form which are solid chunks of ice and plunge like white rocks on the sidewalk. During the winter the droplets turn to ice crystals and grow into snowflakes and when the sun comes out the snowflakes melts and turn to water.

    This book will teach children the different stages of water droplets how they turn into heavy rain, form hailstones, snowflakes and water vapor. The droplets can’t wait to get rounder and heavier soon the cloud can’t hold them any longer and they turn into rain again.

    The last two pages include a word search and word match activities. The art works by Alexander Morris are bright and fun which helps to tell the story.

    Great book for early learning!

    Wonderful Learning Experience

    My 7 year old Grandson and I read this book together, and we greatly enjoyed it.
    He was able to read parts to me, and loved answering the what was Ginger the cat feeling when she was hiding under the porch, during the hail storm? There are several questions like that, and and he had a delightful time thinking up answers.
    We followed the journey of the rain droplets that got to heavy for the clouds to hold. We read about rain, floods....he felt sorry for the poor kids and Mom in the back of the truck! Also hail and snow...and then how the water got back up to the clouds.
    This is a really great learning experience, and he did the word search at the end.
    I received a copy of this book from the author Mayra Calvani and was not required to give a positive review.
