Peter Spier's Rain
Peter Spier ~ Doubleday, 1982

Something extra for you this morning. My son pulled Rain off the shelf last night, and I'd almost forgotten all about it. Definitely my favorite Peter Spier book. I was one of those kids who would dance in the rain every chance I got. Build huge canals in our dirt driveway and frolic in all the mud and fun that comes with a torrential downpour. I don't know what it is about letting yourself go in a rainstorm, but this elegant book captures that freedom perfectly without uttering a single sound. Lovely so many times over. As always with Mr. Spier, a snapshot speaks a thousand words, so enjoy your morning and join me in crossing fingers for an early fall shower.
