McCanna, Tim Watersong, illustrated by Richard Smythe. PICTURE BOOK. Simon and Schuster, 2017. $18.
Through the use of mainly onomatopoeia and lush watercolor drawings, author and illustrator build a dreamy look at the beginning, middle and after effects of a sudden downpour. While this would just be fun to read out loud to a crowd for story time, this would also be a great jumping off point for a writing prompt at any grade level.
