Overview

Something amazing is happening in the rainy city – and with Mama’s help, Ally is going to find it.
There’s nothing to do on a rainy day – or so Ally thinks. But Mama says she’s seen something amazing, so despite Ally’s misgivings, she sets out on an adventure with her mother and grandmother. On her journey, she sees all sorts of things: dripping awnings, wet cardboard, splashing cars…but also earthworms, storm drain geysers, and oil slick patterns. And then they turn the corner, just in time to see a big crowd. What’s happening?
Lyrical text from Sandra Markle and stunning paintings from Thomas Gonzalez, New York Times best-selling illustrator of 14 Cows for America, tell the story of a remarkable, natural occurrence in an urban setting. Toad Weather is an engaging story of anticipation, curiosity, investigation, and discovery.
