Come On, Rain!

By: Karen Hesse


From the publisher:

“Come on, Rain!” Tess pleads to the sky as listless vines and parched plants droop in the endless heat. Then the clouds roll in and the rain pours. And Tess, her friends, and their mothers join in together in a rain dance to celebrate the shower that renews both body and spirit.

Through exquisite language and acute observation, Karen Hesse evokes this refreshing experience, and Jon J Muth’s lyrical artwork perfectly reflects the spirit of the text.

Product Description

Come On, Rain! by Karen Hesse describes the joyful and freeing experience of a rain shower on a sweltering summer day. Tess looks at the sky and eagerly waits for rain while her mother works on their small garden.

When she sees big rain clouds rolling in, Tess goes and gets her friends. Together, they put on their swimsuits and wait for the rain. When the rain finally does fall, the girls’ mothers are so excited that they join their daughters in a joyful dance through the puddles.

The simple and subtle watercolor illustrations by John J Muth perfectly portray the anticipation and refreshment that comes with a summer rainstorm.
