Summary
Discover the wonder of water in this refreshingly fun and fascinating exploration of rain, raindrops, and the water cycle from the creator of Rah, Rah, Radishes! and Go, Go Grapes!

Raindrops drop. They plop. They patter. They spatter. And in the process, they make the whole world feel fresh and new and clean.

In this gorgeously photo-illustrated nonfiction picture book, celebrated author April Pulley Sayre sheds new light on the wonders of rain, from the beauty of a raindrop balanced on a leaf to the amazing, never-ending water cycle that keeps our planet in perfect ecological balance.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Raindrops get a close-up treatment in this quietly informative picture book. In gorgeous, page-filling, full-color photos of raindrops on lush greenery, Sayre shows typical water behavior. It patters appears on a body of water dimpled by rain. It fills accompanies a waxy leaf tenuously cupping a large droplet. They magnify pairs with a raindrop distorting the spots on a lily petal. Raindrops slowly dry accompanies a picture of a rain-spattered leaf in the sun. Each clearly rendered photo focuses on drops of water as they pool, glob, drip, and slip down leaves and flowers, on beetles and lacy spiderwebs. The spare words altogether are loosely rhythmic, and the simplicity of the motion-based vocabulary is mostly effective at demonstrating what's happening in the photo. It's the rich visuals, however, that steal the show. Not only do the photos beautifully capture water in action but they zoom in on things most kids could see in their own backyards or neighborhoods an especially useful approach for visual or hands-on learners. An author's note explains the water cycle in more detail.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: ""Raindrop spangles/ mark angles./ They cling to curves/ and cover cocoons." In playful rhymes and breathtaking nature photography, Sayre offers a dramatic examination of a rain shower as droplets soak birds, roll down pumpkins, dot the backs of insects, and muddy the forest floor. Sayre's close-up photographs are startling in their intimacy-a bead of water seems to defy gravity as it pools precariously on a green leaf, while dozens of tiny drops illuminate a spider's feather-light web. These images alone are enough to make the book a treasure; an informative closing section exploring water's forms, behavior, and characteristics is icing on the cake. Ages 4-8.
