    One thought on “When Rain Falls”

    1. This book is by the same team that wrote and illustrated the superlative Under the Snow. This earlier book is superb also. It has the same last line as the later book, and it’s not my favorite but I can find no fault with the rest of the book(s). None at all. And I’m being nitpicky about the last line too because I think many children will delight in it.The watercolors drawings are outstanding: beautiful and educational. The narrative tells what different animals do when it rains. She starts [...]

    2. I first saw this book a few years ago at the Humboldt State University Natural History Museum. I was immediately blown away by the art and the author's simple and engaging way of opening a window into the lives of animals.I wish I had bought it then, so they could have benefited from a little profit, and my kids could have enjoyed it longer. I got it from about a month ago, and have been itching to read it to my 6 and 9 year old children. I finally did so today and neither author nor illustrato [...]

    3. When Rain Falls is typical of much of Melissa Stewart's writing. Both this book and Under the Snow follow the creatures of nature in their habitat and show their hidden world; in this case, during a rainy day. Beyond enjoying the book's obvious value of being entertaining, the young reader will understand the value of wetlands, fields, forests, and deserts in providing "safe harbors" for each animal in its unique habitat. The flow of language, the beautiful illustrations and the author's obvious [...]

    4. WHEN RAIN FALLS is a soothing, lyrical journey filled with interesting facts about where animals take shelter when rain falls. The text takes us through four different habitats: a forest, a field, a wetland, and a desert. The journey ends when the rain stops, allowing readers to spot the animals in their daily activities. This is a wonderful bedtime or rainy-day book that will leave children wondering and imagining the next time rain falls.

    5. Just like people, animals react to rain in different ways. Personally when it rains I want nothing more than to curl up under a blanket, open a window and listen to the rain fall as I’m enjoying whatever novel I am reading. When Rain Falls is a little read that describes how different animals in various habitats respond to the rain. The text and illustrations are simple and perfect for young elementary age students on a rainy day or any day.

    6. A beautiful, lyrical story about animals both big and small and how they cope with a rainstorm. Have you ever wondered how a fragile butterfly survives the pounding rain? Tiny ants? Wonder no more. Kids will be fascinated by this glimpse into the natural world and animal behavior. Visit the author's website for more rainy day fun.

    7. While this is not a hard core nonfiction picture book, it still is nonfiction with beautiful illustrations. For me the deciding factor between picture book and nonfiction was the spadefoot toads who actually come to the surface mate, lay eggs and burrow back into the sand when the rain stops. This is a lovely peaceful presentation of the animals in the rain.

    8. This book is a wonderful picture book. It models beautiful language with great alliteration and strong verbs as well as teaches about what happens in nature when rain falls. Educators and families alike will love this book that makes a wonderful read aloud with lovely illustrations.

    9. Melissa Stewart came to my school and had our second-graders perform this book as a Readers' Theatre. The performers and the younger kids watching absolutely loved it. Don't miss the companion books Under the Snow, and Beneath the Sun.

    10. WHEN RAIN FALLS people and animals everywhere change their routine. Author Melissa Stewart and illustrator, Constance R. Bergum show you how. Lilting prose and lifelike illustrations capture each moment perfectly.Published by Peachtree Atlanta.#animals #rainydays #PB

    11. Wonderful book for any child who wonders what animals do when it rains. Graceful intelligent text is complimented by handsome illustrations.

    12. A must for the library shelves. A perfect-picture-science book. An everlasting nature story that will only be withdrawn from shelves due to the pages falling out from being read over and over again.

    13. This book shows nicely how different animals in different habitats react when it starts to rain.Good for preschool or toddler storytimes.
