Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Two unlikely playmates meet in a meadow to play despite admonishments from their families. It's raining, which puts a damper on their games. 'What a wonderful day' exclaims a frog. She shows them how to enjoy the rainy day by leading them through the rain and puddles. The playmates share their day with their families when they return home. On the next rainy day, everyone joins in the games. Charming illustrations add to the fun.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1The unlikely companions featured in Cat and Mouse (Farrar, 1996) return in another quiet story of friendship. Despite warnings of a dreary day, the two wander out into the rain and befriend a frog who shows them the playful side of wet weather. They, in turn, share the lesson with family and friends. Simple straightforward text and colorful double-page tempera paintings deliver the basic, yet universal, message. The theme and visual appeal create storytime potential. Libraries in which the earlier book is popular will want to consider this sequel. A pleasant, if nonessential, purchase.Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, WI
Kirkus Reviews
Bogacki's second book about two friends (Cat and Mouse, 1996) is a charming glass-half-empty/glass-half-full story. From their respective homes, the little mouse and the little cat want to go out to the meadow to play with each other, but their siblings warn them that it might rain. The two friends meet anyway, and thanks to an optimistic frog, the pair learn how to play in the drizzle. The text and illustrations shine in their simplicity; Bogacki's lines recreate rain and grass, and give the characters furry appeal. The circle of tolerance grows in this entry: During a second day of rain, all the little cats, all the little mice, and all the little frogs frolic together.
