What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault evoke the beauty and the mystery, and the sounds and the silences–of rain. Listen to the rain, the whisper of the rain, the slow soft sprinkle, the drip-drop tinkle, the first wet whisper of the rain. Their marvelous ear for the melodies and rhythm of language, combined with James Endicott’s spare, almost abstract paintings, have created a lyrical book with a haunting power–perfect for reading aloud on a rainy day.
