This was a clear, but simple, introduction to the water cycle. I kind of wish it went a bit further.

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.

Recommends it for: beginning readers and parents reading with them
This is a fun beginning reader book that tells a story, but also teaches about science. The narrative is simple and the illustrations are colorful. Our youngest brought this book home from her first grade class and read it aloud to me. We enjoyed reading it together and talking about the water cycle.

Very good but to introduce what rains is. It is a level one book. It is easy for children to understand and also read if the child is already reading.
