AWARDS & ACCOLADES
“Children can expand on the ideas in this slight celebration of weather; strong backmatter will answer their questions” – Kirkus Reviews
“You can almost hear the rush and gush of water as you read I Like the Rain. This is a wonderful picture book for reading aloud because of its lyrical rhyme and rhythm, which lends it a hypnotic and quietening quality, just like the sound of the rain itself: good material for when you need to bring a child’s energy down a notch, perhaps before naptime or bed” – Booklist
