This is probably a little too simple for a preschool storytime, unless you're really getting into how rain works and want this as a lead-off, but it's perfect for a younger storytime, especially a baby storytime. Short and simple, cute illustrations...I wish I'd had this available for the storytime we did on rain at the beginning of February.
