During a rainstorm, a mouse keeps getting dripped on while trying to sleep. He fetches bigger and bigger containers to catch the water, but every time he thinks its fixed: "Drip Drop, Plip Plop." When he runs out of containers to hold the water, he gives up ... and that's when the rain stops.
Rosa Cline
poor little mouse wants nothing more than to go to bed, but it's raining and it's dripping all over his house! He finds cups, hats, buckets, everything he can think of but nothing works to hold it all. will he ever be able to go to sleep? This is a good beginning reader book full of simple words and they rhyme.

Weeks, S. (2002). Drip Drop. New York: HarperCollins
The author created a cute rhyming story about a mouse and his troubles. It’s raining and the mouse tries to stop it from leaking into his home. After using all kinds of containers the mouse gives up and lets it leak away. The mouse tires so hard to stop the inevitable and realizes that he can’t and just lets things happen.

Shelves: 2009, childrens
This is a fun rhyming book for beginning readers. Poor Pip Squeak has a lead and cannot sleep! The repetitive narrative, not-too-challenging vocabulary and colorful illustrations are very encouraging for young readers.

Pip Squeak's roof is really leaking and he doesn't have enough containers to catch all the water.

Just when Pip Squeak gives up, an unexpected solution appears to him, literally out of the blue!

Fun little rhymes, and good illustrations, but I just can't seem to get over my adult approach to this book...leaking roofs just aren't fun!

This story contains a lot of repeated text that is great for a read aloud, and also for beggining readers. This book could also be used in a lesson on rhyming words.
