Overview

Written in the tradition of classic nursery rhymes, The Rain Baby is told in verse, an ideal way to engage young imaginations and stimulate an interest in reading. Ongoing research confirms that children build key reading and language skills with rhyming texts, which help build phomenic awareness. Studies have demonstrated that the better children are at detecting rhymes, the quicker and more successful they will be at learning to read. The "Read to Me" feature further aids in language development and word recognition, while the sound effects and animated illustrations engage a child's emergent curiosity without overwhelming their developing senses.

Destined to become an environmental children's classic, The Rain Baby tells the story of a child born from a raindrop who descends from the heavens to restore planet Earth's most precious resource, water. This cross-platform ebook with built-in Read Aloud features is animated on the iPad and the latest version of KindleFire. Here is what the nation's top educators, artists and conservationists are saying about The Rain Baby.
