A delightful rainy-day celebration!

I sing a little rain song, a simple song, a plain song, a pitter-patter-tip-tap-on-the-windowpane song. Drip drop, plip plop, pit pat, split splat!

Put down your umbrella! Take off your galoshes! It's time to sing and dance in the rain. When one little girl and her adorable dog venture out on a rainy spring day, her neighborhood friends join her, and what results is squishy, sloshy, muddy day fun.

Amy Gibson's simple, whimsical rhymes and New York Times bestselling illustrator Steve Björkman's bright and sweet illustrations create the perfect celebration of nature and friendship in this springtime, anytime rhyme!
