April Showers

Spring Rain by Shelley Krause

Two in the morning--
the rain and the roof
are talking

We've taken down our Easter decorations and have hung tiny glass raindrops on the branches in our vase.

It's raining and on that note...here are a few things that we enjoy on rainy days...

Yellow Umbrella is more than a book, it's an experience. A wordless award winner with stunning paintings by Jae Soo Liu and music by composer Dong II Sheen.

Doodle All Year is another Taro Gomi marvel, the chunkiest book of fun ever.

The Other Side by artist Istvan Banyai is a wordless, visual treat in which the other side of the page IS the other side of the story. Satch loves the upside down house and the bike riding Penguin.

Fizz, Bubble & Flash! is terrific book of fun science experiments. You can play with your food and separate the iron from your breakfast cereal with a magnet or make a dollar bill dance!

The Kids' Science Book is another great source. Make sprout art or learn how to make rain in your kitchen!

Have an M.Y.O.P. party and make your own puppets and puppet theaters. I LOVE the "Umbrelly Sea Jelly.....I wish I thought of it first!

And how about some quite time and learn hand signs using THIS beautifully illustrated alphabet book.

Thanks for the shout out, sweet you!

(And if anyone buys the book, please do let me know what you think, as they're not for profit, but for smiles.)
