A delightful, rainy day celebration!
I sing a little rain song, a simple song, a plain song, a pitter-patter-tip-tap-on-the-windowpane song. Drip drop, plip plop, pit pat, split splat! Put down your umbrella! Take off your galoshes! It's time to sing and dance in the rain. When one little girl and her adorable dog venture out on a rainy, spring day, the neighborhood joins her and what results is squishy, sloshy, muddy day fun.
Amy Gibson’s simple, whimsical rhymes and New York Times bestselling illustrator Steve Bjorkman’s bright and sweet illustrations create the perfect celebration of nature and friendship in this springtime, anytime rhyme!

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A delightful rainy day read! Like Denise Fleming's books, Amy Gibson's writing is simple, rhyming prose that expresses the experience of a rainy day. It is less of a story per se, and more of a feeling. The use of alliteration combined with sound words make for a fun and entertaining book. The illustrations are bright, colorful and fun. They are a perfect match for the writing. I hope to find more books illustrated by Steve Bjorkman. His style is simple, yet very engaging.
