Come on Rain! (1999)

Author: Hesse, Karen Illustrator: Muth, Jon J.
Publisher: Scholastic
Number of pages: 32 pages

In this quietly affecting story, award-winning author Hesse and artist Muth deftly capture the magnificence of a sudden rainstorm on a sweltering hot day. Much more than a simple tale of weather, Come On, Rain! portrays the tenderness of mother-daughter relations, the rhythms of urban society, and the power of nature to transform and reinvigorate all forms of life.
