Editorial Reviews

"Grab some galoshes and raid the lost and found for umbrellas because readers will be enamored with inclement weather after reading this beautiful book. . . . The story's language and illustrations are wonderfully matched, as both capture the dual wonders on display. . . Maclear's playful use of alliteration, consonance, and onomatopoeia make this a joy to read aloud. . ."-Booklist, starred review


"Maclear (Story Boat) celebrates the unbounded joy of discovery in ordinary things, chronicling events with a poet's powers of observation. . . Digital, retro-style spreads by Turnham (National Parks of the USA) give the pages a memorable look with a palette of unexpected hues. . . . Together, the creators conjure a child who fully inhabits each present moment until the sun arrives again."-Publishers Weekly
