Rainy Day!

Overview

A little bit of bad weather isn’t going to stop the crocodiles from having agood time. With their slickers on and their umbrellas open, Sam, Pam, Will and Jill set out to find some rainy-day fun.

Overview

A little bit of bad weather isn’t going to stop the crocodiles from having agood time. With their slickers on and their umbrellas open, Sam, Pam, Will and Jill set out to find some rainy-day fun.

And that’s when a new friend has the best idea of all: An afternoon in the library turns out to be the perfect rainy-day activity.

This follow-up to the IRA-CBC Children’s Choice book Beach Day! is an exuberant, goofy kid-pleaser for every kind of weather.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
Four crocodile friends are tired of wet weather. There seems to be nothing to do inside, so they decide to head out in spite of the rain. They gear up and head out. Soon, the fog takes over, bringing a series of unexpected sights, including a pirate ship, a whale, and a monster. They have stumbled upon a mini-golf park! The friends cheer their way through a quick game, then meet a surprising stranger with a new diversion—baseball. Hail comes along, bringing their game to a sudden end. Thankfully, their new friend has another idea of what they can do for rainy day fun, head for the library. Patricia Lakin's dialogue-centered story moves quickly from one scene to the next. This seems a particularly fine selection for springtime reading, when children and adults alike are most able to sympathize with the frustration of seemingly endless days of rain.
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1
Four crocodile pals are bored with being cooped up inside, so they outfit themselves for the inclement weather and set off. They spy a pirate ship, whale, and monster in the distance, but when the fog lifts, they find that "this scary place" is actually a mini-golf park and they decide to play. The action is conveyed in short declarations: "'Smack it!' said Sam. 'Putt it!' said Pam. 'Hit it!' said Will. 'Lost it!' said Jill." Next, a shaggy black dog with a ball in its mouth approaches, and the friends begin an impromptu baseball game (using an umbrella as a bat). When they realize that a torrent of fly balls is actually a hailstorm, the clever canine leads the way to safety in a library. The crocs settle in with books related to their favorite adventures of the day. Nash's bright, expansive cartoons, crisply outlined in black pencil, detail the exploits of these befuddled reptiles. A lively offering packed with child appeal.

Kirkus Reviews
Four rhyme-happy crocodiles find fun during a long steady storm. There's nothing to do indoors, so even though it's raining, crocodiles Sam, Pam, Will and Jill decide to play outside. They put on colorful raincoats and boots and hats and take their umbrellas. Rain and fog make the trip slow going, but the foursome finds an empty miniature golf course and a big wet pooch with whom they play baseball (the umbrellas make good bats). When the rain turns to hail, they find the perfect place for rainy day adventure: their local library, where they can have the same exciting adventures but stay warm and toasty. The format's bold minimalism is attractive; Nash's simple crisp illustrations, in black Prismacolor pencil and Photoshop, combine with easy rhymes and large simple type to invite early readers, who should be able to tackle the text themselves. (Picture book. 2-6)
