Booklist Review

Ages 2^-4. "I press my nose against the screen / and smell the smell of screen and rain." Ray brings to life the highlights of a small boy's rainy day told from the child's point of view. Indoors with his cat, the boy crayons, builds with blocks, plays with dishes and cars, reads, and pretends that the closet is a cave. Finally venturing out into his yard, he splashes around in the puddles with his red rubber boots. Although the ending is less satisfying than the wonderfully evocative first line quoted above, the book as a whole does a fine job of conjuring up a familiar childhood experience. The short text and appealing subject make this picture book accessible to young children. Stringer's acrylic paintings are as vivid as the text. The pictures bring a child's world up close as they evoke the sights and sensations of the day. The illustrations work smoothly with the text to make this a very effective picture book for reading aloud. --Carolyn Phelan


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-The author and illustrator of Mud (Harcourt, 1996) collaborate on another distinctive book, this time about a child enjoying a rainy day. There are favorite inside things to do, perhaps building blocks, reading, or playing cars or tea party. Outside play is even more exciting because of puddles and "Red boots. My boots. Red rubber made-for-rain boots." The richly textured acrylic illustrations fill the pages, offering a magnified view of the child's world. The figurative paintings bring playtime alive through color shadings and brushwork. The text is easy to read with short sentences and a simple serif typeface. Despite the plethora of rainy-day books such as Harriet Ziefert's Me Too! Me Too! (HarperCollins, 1988) or Karla Kuskin's James & the Rain (S & S, 1995), this is a welcome addition for any library. The combination of topic, well-designed layout, and appealing artwork make it a great choice whether read aloud or alone on a rainy day.-Tina Hudak, Takoma Park Maryland Library, MD (c) Copyright 2010.
