"Rain is coming. You can feel it in the air." With rhythmic language and beautiful photography, Raindrops Roll begins with descriptions of the various signs of impending rain. Insects look for shelter under leaves and inside pods, while a bird enjoys the shower from a comfy perch.

A beautifully written book, preschoolers will respond to the close-up photographic illustrations of nature, while also enjoying an introduction to nonfiction. The soothing, measured language used throughout is spare while introducing children to new words like "gather," "glob," "magnify," and "moisten." A section at the back of the book includes scientific information on water and rain, including facts like how the moisture we breathe out may eventually become part of a cloud. The photo illustrations and interesting facts like this are sure to enrapture preschoolers, while the rhythmic language will make for a lovely read-aloud book for caregivers and educators.
