Come On, Rain!


Come On, Rain! by Karen Hesse describes the joyful and freeing experience of a rain shower on a sweltering summer day. Tess looks at the sky and eagerly waits for rain while her mother works on their small garden. When she sees big rain clouds rolling in, Tess goes and gets her friends. Together, they put on their swimsuits and wait for the rain. When the rain finally does fall, the girls’ mothers are so excited that they join their daughters in a joyful dance through the puddles. The simple and subtle watercolor illustrations by John J Muth perfectly portray the anticipation and refreshment that comes with a summer rainstorm.
