Once upon a sunny day, the sky clouded over and the rain came down. The chickens squawked, the dog barked, the baby cried, the traffic snarled, the groceries fell, the people bickered and still, the rain came down.

David Shannon's The Rain Came Down is full of wild and colourful illustrations which show the chaos which a rain storm brings to a little town. The characters are vivid and each is unique, with funny facial expressions, and the varied angles of the illustrations make this a great book for children to explore. The language is just right, with repetition and easy words which add to the building noise of the storm.

A wonderfull book about what happens in a town when it rains. All kinds of things go wrong when it rains. Everyone is angry and mean becuase it is raining. Then one day it stops. Everyone becomes happy. The illustrations in this book are great.

This story is a pattern, repetition book that follows the causes and effects of rain pouring down in a little community. Thankfully, everyone stops being so grumpy and quick-to-anger as soon as the rain stops.Great to use in the classroom for cause and effect lessons. I used it in a David Shannon author study and the kids loved it!
