Reviews - What do customers think about The Rain Came Down?

Rainy day fun, courtesy of those gorgeous illustrations  May 18, 2008
David Shannon unleashes his incredible illustrating talent on expressions of panic as a sudden rainstorm wreaks havoc in a town when the inhabitants are being selfish and rude. It's a little moralistic, but still manages to be a good story and I do appreciate a postive message. What I like best about this one are the illustrations. Despite the rainy day the pages are alive with color and detail and are a wonder to behold.
This book is great!  May 5, 2008
My sister, who is a second grade teacher, originally bought this book for my son - now 2 1/2. He LOVES this book! He loved it when he got it months ago and still loves it today. It has a lot of things going on that allow questions and observations. Plus it has a great underlying theme of being crabby when it is raining and seeing the world in a whole new light when the sun comes out. We've bought this for many of our friends kids as gifts because we love it so much.
wonderful illustrations from another time  Jul 22, 2007
My grandchildren (3 and 5) and I really enjoy this book.
The story is subtle, and yet I feel sure they can reference back to this
concept of 'grumpy on rainy days, suddenly smiling when the sun comes out'
as they grow older.
The illustrations are superb - they do hark back to an earlier time -
which is why I love the book.
The rain came down...  May 11, 2007
This book I purchased for my preschool (ages 3-4) and I do have to say that this book is a little long for their attention spans, but with a lot of enthusiasm by me (the reader) they were able to stick with it. The illistrations are phenominal, and it does have a great moral of the story. I enjoy books that have great oppertunities for discussion and this one does!

I am very pleased with my purchase and with a couple more readings to them, they will be hooked!
A great Rainy Day book to read  Nov 4, 2006
I am an in home day care provider and purchase many books. My little toddlers and preschoolers can't wait for storytime each day. When I read this book to them immediately they caught on to the repetition of "And the rain came down." Every day at storytime when its raining outside, my one little 3 yr old says, "Read, And The Rain Came Down." The art work is very colorful and the different sounds happening keeps their interest. This has become a classic in my day care especially for rainy days, to excite the children.
