Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-A pigtailed child and her small dog discover the joys of a rainy day. As soon as it starts to sprinkle, the girl puts on her rain gear and heads outside. When it starts to pour, she hurries back into her cozy house and enjoys a warm bath and a snack. The shower passes and the sun comes out. In the first half of the book, the text moves from 1 to 10 raindrops. The words and the illustrations do not always match, and readers may find this confusing. On one spread, the left-hand page reads, "Nine little raindrops, puddle fun," and the facing text reads, "Ten little raindrops, still no sun." In the picture, 10 raindrops are highlighted, 5 on each page, making it difficult to count correctly. The spread for seven and eight is equally perplexing. The second half of the book, which counts down from "Ten little toes" to one last raindrop as the sun comes out, is more successful. The illustrations are vivid, colorful, and cheery. Even the heavy rain is depicted with light and brightness. There is a 1950s feel to the book with its square little house with one door, two front windows, and a chimney. With its simple pleasing rhyme and joyful artwork, this works better as a story than as a counting book.-Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A little girl frolics among the raindrops in this effervescent counting book. Out on a stormy day accompanied by her pup, she counts the droplets of rain falling down. Snappy little rhyming couplets keep the pace lively as she counts from one to ten. When the intensifying storm drives her indoors, the she counts down, enumerating the homey items around her as she warms up and enjoys a tasty snack. Text and art work in harmony to convey the full charm of this tale. Paparone carefully highlights the appropriate number of raindrops in each illustration; however, readers will be challenged to locate the higher number of drops amid the onslaught of the approaching deluge. The full-bleed pictures are laden with lush colors; the rich crimson of the tot's raincoat and galoshes provides a crisp contrast with the bright emerald of the lawn, while the interior bath scenes are filled with a vivid array of lemon yellows and tangerine oranges. Finishing on a triumphant note with the sun bursting forth, this bright tale is just right for snuggling up on a stormy day. (Picture book. 2-6)

    This is my daughter's favorite book!

    We received this book from the Imagination Library and it became an instant favorite. The book teaches counting with simple rhymes tht roll easily off your tongue (important when reading the same book over and over). Yet the illustrations are probably the best part of this book. There is so many fun details she loves pointing to all the different animals and objects. She is two and we've had it for a year and we still read it almost every day.
