One of the most beloved children's songs get a rollicking picture book treatment by the beloved trio Peter, Paul and Mary. Featuring witty and whimsical art by the renowned illustrator Christine Davenier, this stunning new book offers plenty of fun, whether it's raining or not.
When the rain pours down, a family full of children decides to play hide-and-seek. As they scurry into the corners and cubbies and crevices of their house, one little girl cuddles up with Grandpa—the "old man who bumped his head"—and reads to him from her favorite book to help him feel better. Davenier's sweet and endearing art enhances the fun and fantasy of Peter, Paul and Mary's charming new arrangement of the tune. Here, the sweet nursery rhyme takes imaginative flight as a cow jumps over the moon, Granddad flies to the stars, and familiar characters like Jack and Jill appear. At the end, when the game is over and the rain, rain has gone away, the entire happy family gathers around Grandpa.
Complete with a CD featuring Peter, Paul and Mary's marvelous version of the title song, along with Peter Yarrow singing "Believe Town" and Noel Paul Stookey performing "Glory of Love," this beautiful picture book is perfect for rainy days, bedtime, or any time.
