Watersong by Tim McCanna - ESSENTIAL

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.
