Linda Ashman

A rainy day is the backdrop for this tale of a grumpy old man and a delighted little boy. The man puts on his “nasty galoshes” and “blasted overcoat” as the joyful little boy happily grabs his rain gear for a splash through the puddles. When they meet at the Rain or Shine Café the boy is rebuffed but not discouraged. An act of kindness leads to a change of heart, thanks to the boy’s enthusiastic spirit. Robinson’s paint and collage illustrations offer a bright complement to Ashman’s brief spot-on text. “Cheers” for the rain and all its puddle-splashing fun! Ages 4-6
