A beautifully illustrated, heartwarming story of perseverance. The story is well-paced and fun. As a plus, there are side-bars and back matter covering the water cycle and fun extra activities relating to the story. My kids love to hear this one over and over.

It feels a little odd to rate my own book, but I happen to like Plink and her story especially because Plink is the one who made me an author!

I own this book and happy I do. It's a sweet story of poor little Plink who is having a hard time falling. I love how the problem is resolved. Creatively written and illustrated. I also appreciate the educational side notes on some of the pages.

This book is great! The illustrations are vivid, which my daughter especially loves. And the science facts sprinkled within the story are a huge hit with both my kids.

The Raindrop Who Couldn’t Fall is a charming book filled with bright, cheerful illustrations. I never knew a raindrop could be so cute, soft, puffy and plump! Even Plink’s grandmother is adorable in her spectacles. Plink really wants to float down from the clouds like all the other raindrops, but she’s too afraid. The story shows young children how sometimes you just have to keep trying. An added bonus are attractive information tags inserted every other spread or so. These additions explain dif ...more
