KIRKUS REVIEW

Young kids who don’t already appreciate rain may change their minds after experiencing this small picture book that exuberantly pours on, in verse, the watery delights of a rainy day in April. Yee’s impressionistic paintings and the subtle nature lessons are as gentle and soft as a spring shower. Youngsters will enjoy the onomatopoetic sounds of the rainfall and have fun answering the riddles posed here, too. Who likes rain? Why, a host of creatures, though Yee reminds us that cats, dogs and even “Papa’s old truck” can well do without it. Of course, at the end, if children won’t have already caught on, it seems as if it’s the little girl herein who likes rain the most—with or without her bright raingear. Sweet. (Picture book. 2-6)
