As a rainstorm approaches, a young girl and her grandfather take the farm animals into the shelter of the barn and then watch the rain begin.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 4-7. Otto's fetching mood piece captures that surprising change when a summer storm rolls in and drenches everything. Set on a farm, just after a little girl and her parents arrive for a visit, the tale finds Grandpa taking his granddaughter on a quick stroll around the barnyard to check the animals. The text is spare and more evocative than concrete; it's the watercolor illustrations that breathe life into the farm setting, the rush of the storm, and the camaraderie between the girl and her grandfather. The pictures have a pristine clarity that subtly highlights the well-realized house, barn, and outbuildings. The words, however, are crafted into memorable images too: "It's the most commonplace kind of magic, / clouds spilling down before your eyes. / You can open your mouth and drink / sky like a tall glass of water. / Look at that rain!" As real as you can get without getting wet. --Denise Wilms"
