April Showers

Illustrated by Aruego & Dewey. Greenwillow, 1995.

“A gathering of high-jumping frogs celebrates spring with a dazzling display of terpsichorean feats against a colorful melange of flowers and foliage depicted with joyous abandon. The rhymed text has a toe-tapping, finger-snapping rhythm that demands audience participation, as suggested by the recurring refrain…Bright, splashy, and fun—a spring tonic.” HORN BOOK

“The repetitive rhyme and colorful, comical illustrations will delight and invite readers to chine in with the text. This would be a great story to dramatize with your children.” CHILDHOOD EDUCATION
