The Rain Puddle

Author(s): Adelaide Holl; Roger Duvoisin

Picture Books

Someone has fallen into the rain puddle But who is it? Well, on that point everyone seems to disagree. Is it the plump hen? The turkey? The curly sheep? The lovely, fat pig? Everyone sees something different when they look down into the puddle--until, that is, all the animals look at once, and see the entire farmyard underwater Off they run in search of help, as the wise old owl perched in a tree shakes his head and chuckles to himself.

This wonderfully silly children's book, originally published in 1965, is ideal for reading aloud, a tale that perfectly captures the wonder of discovering the outside world.
