In this gently rhyming board book full of simple, evocative language and charming illustrations, a girl makes a paper boat, splashes in puddles, makes mud pies, and has other springtime fun with her pet dog by her side. While encouraging outdoor exploration and play for young children, the protagonist's fun adventures will introduce the earliest readers to all of the sensory experiences and emotions that come with the wet weather of spring. In the Rain also makes for a perfect sit-in-your-lap reading experience for toddlers, regardless of the conditions outside.
