Overview

Watersong by Tim McCanna, Richard Smythe

A New York Public Library Best Book for Kids
An NCTE Notable Poetry Book

“McCanna’s carefully chosen words are nearly all onomatopoeia, a cacophony of water sounds that resonates on tongue and ear, demanding to be read aloud...Beautiful.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

In glorious onomatopoeia, Tim McCanna takes the reader on a dazzling journey as a fox seeks shelter from a rainstorm.

Drip
Drop
Plip
Plop
Pitter
Patter
Pat.


As the rain begins, a little fox seeks shelter. But then it builds and builds into to a torrential storm.

Wash! Wham!
Lash! Whirl!
Bash! Swirl!
Hiss! Slap! Slam!


Both a visual feast and a joy to read aloud, this stunning picture book showcases the power and beauty of nature.
