揝ky grumbles. Rain tumbles. Big weather you抎 better get under umbrella! BOOM BOOM. A rainstorm in the big city on a summer day means the appearance of umbrellas, a mad dash for the subway, and a spontaneous, generous-spirited gathering belowground. 揟he storm above makes friends of strangers. We laugh under cover at thunder and danger. The visual storytelling accompanying the narrative enables readers and listeners to follow a number of individuals as the storm breaks, booms, and eventually moves away. A delight to read aloud, there is ample opportunity for enthusiastic participation with the repetitive onomatopoeia, while the finely crafted rhyming phrases create a satisfying narrative arc. 揥e wave good-bye. 慡o long! Keep dry!挃 Honor Book, 2015 Charlotte Zolotow Award  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
