What has more play potential than a rainy day? Peep and Ducky return in a splashy story that begs to be read aloud.
When Peep visits Ducky on a rainy day, the little pals have no trouble finding things to do. Inside, there is a tent to build and a pillow fight to be had. And outside, with the help of galoshes and umbrella, it’s fun to captain a boat—until a whoosh of wind and a clap of thunder sends them running back in! Perfectly tuned to a toddler sensibility, this exuberant tale will enchant both listener and reader.
This is a fun story of friendship on a rainy day. The rhyming is well done, and the text and storyline capture the charm and simple pleasure of enjoying a rainy day.
