Summary

Summary

One little raindrop,

dark, dark sky.

Two little raindrops,

clouds go by...

How many ways can you have fun on a rainy day?  From one little raindrop to ten toes soaking in a warm bubble bath, there are lots of things to see and count until the sun comes out again.  In between, there are silly boots to pull on and puddles to splash in and a rainy backyard just waiting to be explored.  A spirited rhyming text that's ideal for reading unexpected pleasures that a little wet weather can bring to a young child's day.

Booklist Review

PreS-K. In a story just right for young learners, Lewison adds bounce and freshness to a review of numbers. A little girl in a shiny red raincoat and green boots searches for the silver lining and catalogs the many things she encounters along the way. As she travels across the pages, the text counts up to 10 (One little raindrop, / dark, dark sky. / Two little raindrops, / clouds go by ) and back down again after she arrives home ( Ten little toes / in a nice warm tub. / Nine soapy bubbles, / scrub-a-dub-dub! ). The narrative is spare, simple, and rhythmic--easy for young listeners to commit to memory and read aloud--and Paparone's cheerful, boldly colored artwork will keep the rainy-day doldrums at bay. A bright pick-me-up for a soggy afternoon. --Terry Glover Copyright 2004 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-A pigtailed child and her small dog discover the joys of a rainy day. As soon as it starts to sprinkle, the girl puts on her rain gear and heads outside. When it starts to pour, she hurries back into her cozy house and enjoys a warm bath and a snack. The shower passes and the sun comes out. In the first half of the book, the text moves from 1 to 10 raindrops. The words and the illustrations do not always match, and readers may find this confusing. On one spread, the left-hand page reads, "Nine little raindrops, puddle fun," and the facing text reads, "Ten little raindrops, still no sun." In the picture, 10 raindrops are highlighted, 5 on each page, making it difficult to count correctly. The spread for seven and eight is equally perplexing. The second half of the book, which counts down from "Ten little toes" to one last raindrop as the sun comes out, is more successful. The illustrations are vivid, colorful, and cheery. Even the heavy rain is depicted with light and brightness. There is a 1950s feel to the book with its square little house with one door, two front windows, and a chimney. With its simple pleasing rhyme and joyful artwork, this works better as a story than as a counting book.-Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN (c) Copyright 2010.
