Rain: Board Book by Linda Ashman, illustrated by Christian Robinson
From Houghton Mifflin Publishing:
2014 Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator Award Winner *"Altogether delightful." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review One rainy day in the city, an eager little boy exclaims, "Rain!" Across town a grumpy man grumbles, "Rain." In this endearing book, now in board book format, a rainy-day cityscape comes to life in vibrant, cut-paper-style artwork. The boy in his green frog hat splashes in puddles--"Hoppy, hoppy, hoppy!"--while the old man curses the "dang puddles." Can the boy's natural exuberance (and perhaps a cookie) cheer up the grouchy gentleman and turn the day around?
