Tiny Tomes - Rain & Rainbows
Spring in northeast Wisconsin can bring rain, sun, snow, sleet, or (most likely) all of the above. This week, we focused on rain and rainbows in preparation for warmer weather ahead.
This Beautiful Day by Richard Jackson. Even rainy days are fun in their own way. Note the illustrations getting more colorful as the story proceeds.
Rain Feet by Angela Johnson. Great for even the youngest tome-turners. Full of the sensory experiences of exploring in the rain.
Rainbow Stew by Cathryn Falwell. A lovely story about the beautiful bounty in Grandpa’s backyard garden.
Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert. My two-year-old adores this book, and has for the nearly two years we’ve been reading it! Colorful, bold illustrations of a variety of flowers accompany a child’s explanation of how a garden grows.
Worm Weather by Jean Taft. More rainy-day adventures, this time including worms!
Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain by Verna Aardema. A beautifully told Kenyan folktale.
