The contrast between the cover illustration and the title grabbed me as soon as I saw this book.
The illustrations start out as black and white.
Kids sitting at home being somewhat bored on a rainy day.
Then the boy turns on the radio and music pours out.
Suddenly there is a little wisp of blue in the illustration and much more movement.
When their dancing gets to big to be contained inside, they venture outside with a parade of umbrellas
all of us skipping and singing and calling aloud
As the rain lets up, the colors pour into the illustrations
Love the music and bounce of the text!
Such color and joy!
And finally they are back in the garden for a popsicle snack with their mother
all together, oh yes
I love how this book demonstrates the beauty to be had in every day/situation.
