Today’s nonfiction picture book is dripping with clever language. Each page is soaked in a variety of verbs as raindrops roll, patter, thud and make mud.
Its lyrical prose will take you many places raindrops go, through close-up photography that reveals droplets on spider webs, flower stems, and the antenae of a rain-repelling grasshopper.
This reads like pure poetry, and will make you long for a summer shower.
(A very quick read with minimal text.)
