Publisher Comments:

Once upon a sunny day, the sky clouded over, and the rain came down. The chickens squawked, the dog barked, the baby cried, the traffic snarled, the groceries fell, the people bickered, and still, the rain came down. <P>In pictures full of wit and good-natured humor, Caldecott Honor artist David Shannon captures the chaos that follows an unexpected downpour.<P>Rain or shine, here is an engaging story that will brighten the day of any reader.

Suzan Grindrod, July 24, 2012 (view all comments by Suzan Grindrod)
Funny story about a chain reaction caused by a downpour, but really David Shannon, couldn't you have thought a little outside the box when you assigned the gender roles in this book? On the female side we had a mom, a little girl who cries because she's splashed with water, a hair stylist, a passenger in a taxi, and a chicken. On the male side there was a dad, a policeman, a baker, a house painter, a grocer, a pizza maker, an ice cream seller, a taxi driver, a produce delivery man and a boy who sails a boat in the gutter. Maybe it's because Sally Ride was on my mind today, but honestly, had we not advanced any further in 2000 when this book was published? It's not even nontraditional anymore to have police women or male hairdressers! I'm disappointed.
