“Rain” by Sam Usher is a lovely story about a child called Sam and his Grandad. Sam really wants to go and play outside in the rain but Grandad says no, they must wait until the rain stops and anyway Grandad has important things to do. Sam watches the rain while drinking hot chocolate, reading books and dreaming of adventures. Eventually Grandad needs to post an important letter so they head outside despite the rain. They have wonderful adventures in the rain and the floods! The message of this book could be ……..good things come to those who wait!!!
I love the illustrations, they really create that cosy feeling of when you are wrapped up inside and it is raining outside. Then they really depict beautifully the amazing adventures outside too! I am now keen to read Sam Usher other weather themed book “Snow”.
A great book especially to read through an April shower! xx
