Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Originally published in 1983 as Four Valentines in a Rainstorm, Felicia Bond's The Day It Rained Hearts follows young Cornelia Augusta as she makes creative use of a most unusual downpour. Along with the name change, Bond's offering has also been enlarged, adding a generous white frame around sweet and simple vignettes of Cornelia fashioning a quartet of handcrafted Valentine's Day cards; includes a heart-themed sticker sheet. ( Dec.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
"One day it started raining hearts, and Cornelia Augusta caught one." Before long, she had caught enough to make her Valentines. She studied each one carefully, for they were all different, and she chose just the right ones for each of her friends. She lovingly and thoughtfully created four cards and mailed them to her friends. The dog, the mouse, the turtle and the bunny were delighted, and readers will enjoy the subtle humor as they see how each Valentine was appropriate for its recipient. The matter-of-fact text is accompanied by whimsical illustrations. Originally published in 1983 as Four Valentines in a Rainstorm, this story, republished as a board book, has not lost any of its charm. It is a delightful story to share one-to-one or in a library story hour. 2004 (orig. 1983), Laura Geringer Books/HarperCollins, Ages 3 to 6.
