Rain is coming, can you feel it? April Pulley Sayre photographed the rain in her yard and the living things that benefit from it. When the clouds darken, animals take cover. The author zooms in on the pattering, spattering raindrops until the reader can see individual drops of rain on leaves, plants and insects. As it continues to rain, mud and puddles form. Then, the rain droplets glisten, magnify, slip and drip. When the sun shines, the raindrops dry. Look closely because Sayre’s photography captures secrets in the book’s beautiful images that will make you want to pull your shoes off and run outside to play in the rain. Don’t forget to read the end pages where you’ll learn even more about the water cycle. Did you know YOU are part of the water cycle. You return raindrops to the sky when you breathe out or your tears dry. (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award Program, 2017)
