“The images and color palette of this book really help to illustrate the feelings of a rainy day and the joy that can be found in imaginative play. I also love that the father is represented as the caregiver while the mother is the one coming home from a day of work.”
— Dana Grimes, Cover to Cover Books for Young Readers, Columbus, OH
