The Rain Came Down

Monday, November 17th, 2008
written and illustrated by David Shannon
On Saturday morning, the rain came down. It made the chickens squawk. The cat yowled at the chickens, and the dog barked at the cat. Each cause and effect leads up to a huge, noisy, bickering mess . . . until the sun comes out. Shannon’s distinct illustrations keep readers hooked from start to finish. Recommended for ages 4-8.
