Come On, Rainby Karen Hesse, Jon J. Muth
"Come on, Rain!" Tess pleads to the sky as listless vines and parched plants droop in the endless heat. Then the clouds roll in and the rain pours. And Tess, her friends, and their mothers join in together in a rain dance to celebrate the shower that renews both body and spirit. Full color.

I teach high school English and use this children's book to teach precise and figurative language. You can virtually taste the words as they fall off your tongue!
I went from parched and wrung out to happy and refreshed in 30-odd pages. While the illustrations are great, they really aren't needed the words do it all!
