In case you missed our Rain storytime this week, don't worry. Here are some of the fun stories and songs we shared, plus some extras to do your own stormy storytime at home.
In her latest gorgeously photo-illustrated nonfiction picture book, celebrated author April Pulley Sayre sheds new light on the wonders of rain, from the beauty of a raindrop balanced on a leaf to the amazing, never-ending water cycle that keeps our planet in perfect ecological balance.

It ain’t gonna rain no more, no more, it ain’t gonna rain no more…

Oh, blech! It’s up to my neck!)
