Details: Product Description
Water is always changing from rain to rivers, fog to thunderheads and snowflakes to ocean waves. John Paterson's lyrical verses present water in its many colors, shapes, and forms as it follows its natural cycle through the seasons.
I Am the Rain captures the imagination through whimsical images and compelling words. As a mother and a scientist, I seek out stories that hold special meaning about the natural world and are shared in a way that speak directly to a child s mind and heart. This book delivers both in a thoughtful and beautiful way. It's sure to be a well loved favorite!" --Dr. Abigail Derby Lewis, Senior Conservation Ecologist, The Field Museum, Chicago, IL
