"Good and bad moods alike can be contagious, as this rainy-day story handily demonstrates."
"This will be ideal to share in late winter when everyone is suffering from the winter blues and needs a reminder to make the most of the gloom and gray."
—School Library Journal
"Two very different attitudes about the weather go head-to-head in Linda Ashman's buoyant Rain!"
