If you love the sound of words than Rain Stomper is for you. As I read it to my sons I really do hear the rain coming down and the rage of the young girl stomping on the rain as the rains has stomped on her expectations for the day...the canceled parade.
The pictures are a visual complement to the sounds of the words.
Here are some of my favorites:
"Slap clatter clatter slap! Rain poured down in buckets. Boom walla boom boom! Thunder rattled the bricks in the walls. Clink Clink Whoosh! The wind plunged her family back into their beds. Even the weeds slunk back into the earth."
Don't you love that visual of the weeds hiding in the earth...sliding themselves back into the sidewalk cracks?
This book is musical rhythm.
