About the Book

Del ilustrador ganador del premio Caldecott por Last Stop on Market Street, este libro de tablero bilingüe es una historia perfecta para un viaje, ¡llueva o haga sol!

En un día lluvioso, una ciudad cobra vida cuando un niño con gorro de rana verde chapotea contento en los charcos mientras un anciano maldice los "condenados charcos". ¿Podrá la felicidad del niño convertir el ceño fruncido del gruñón en sonrisa? Con maravillosas ilustraciones de papel cortado y colores llamativos, ¡Lluvia! / Rain! —un libro de tablero bilingüe con un reparto diverso de personajes— es un viaje extraordinariamente simple pero a la vez sofisticado desde la tristeza y melancolía hacia la felicidad y alegría.

From the Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator of Last Stop on Market Street, this bilingual board book is perfect for on-the-go storytime—rain or shine! 

A rainy-day city comes to life when a boy in his green frog hat splashes in puddles—“Hoppy, hoppy, hoppy!”—while an old man curses the “dang puddles.” Can the boy's smile turn the grumpy man's frown upside down? With brilliant cut-paper art and bold colors, ¡Lluvia/Rain! —a bilingual board book featuring a diverse cast of characters—is an extraordinarily simple yet sophisticated journey from feeling sad and gloomy to radiating happiness and joy.

Critical Praise

"Altogether delightful."
Kirkus, starred review "Good and bad moods alike can be contagious, as this rainy-day story handily demonstrates."
Publishers Weekly "This will be ideal to share in late winter when everyone is suffering from the winter blues and needs a reminder to make the most of the gloom and gray."
School Library Journal "Two very different attitudes about the weather go head-to-head in Linda Ashman's buoyant Rain!"
New York Times Book Review
