Then it Rained is a triumphant story of one child’s determination to challenge conventional wisdom, make his voice heard and live his life to the fullest – whatever the weather!
James finds his frustration mounting as time and again his plans are called off because of the rain. Finally pushed to the breaking point, he makes his voice heard:
“I was four and then five, pretty soon I’ll be seven.
I’m NOT staying inside until I’m eleven!”
The lyrically written story begs to be read aloud, while striking illustrations bring the characters vividly to life. Readers, both young and young at heart, will enjoy reading this story again and again.
