Great book all around. The art is lovely and very textural. Has a chalk/pastel feel to it and I almost wonder if that was intentional to keep the art looking “dry”, as watercolour in this story may leave the reader with a damp/cold feeling. I enjoy the toned-down but not depressing colour palette, showing the beauty of a rainy day. The story starts out close to the children, but as the day progresses, aI notice the view widens to show more of the world around them. The story is set in the city, but shows outdoor nature, like parks. I am so glad both world’s were shown , as a city person, I find the beauty of the city and it’s accessibility are not showcased enough in children’s books. This is a quick read, a lyrical/poetic story about a brother and sister going out to play in the rain in all it’s glory. I enjoy the word play if “worm weather” over “warm weather”. Even though there are only a few words or sentences per page, there are many pages to this book, so it’s a very satisfying read. As someone who grew up on the west coast, the rain is very endearing for me and as a child playing in the rain is just a fact of life vs. a reason to hide indoors, so a book that shows how awesome our climate is is a win for me.
This is a super cute book about playing in the rain. I love the illustrations. I saw some reviews about the text being scarce-I expected to be disappointed and I wasn’t. The book was really cute and my son loved it. Can’t wait to continue to read it to him as he gets older and can play in the rain himself as it rains a ton where we live. Hopefully this book will help him see the joy of a rainy day.
I bought this for my 4 year old granddaughter envisioning a story that focused on the worms. It was a nice story with simple text and wonderful illustrations, but not as much about worms as one would expect given the title and cover picture. I usually try to look at a children’s picture book in a library or store before I buy it. It’s a nice book, just not what I wanted.
My 18 month old twin boys have a love for books, the illustrations are beautiful but it really isn't a fun book and they never ask to read it. I love kids books as well and don't really blame them because I find it dull.
