Who Likes Rain?

by Wong Herbert Yee

Published by Henry Holt, 2007
32 pages
ISBN: 0805077340

Ages 2-4

Who wants rain? Who needs April showers? I know who. . . the trees and the flowers!” A delightful series of rhyming questions and answers are prefaced by playful descriptions of the rain as it falls on various objects. “Pit pit pit” on the windowpane. “Gurgle Gurgle” in the gutters. “Rum-a-tum-tum” on a child’s umbrella. A young Asian girl’s experience throughout the gentle rainstorm is showcased in illustrations that begin with her sadly watching the rain through a window and then going outside to play. Wong Herbert Yee’s quietly engaging picture book invites active participation among young listeners, who will use text and rhyming clues to eagerly offer up answers to the questions posed.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
