Puddle

puddleBy Hyewon Yum

One rainy day, a little boy is upset because he can’t go out and play. His mom comes up with a way to keep him entertained– by drawing a picture of herself and him going outside, playing in the rain, and splashing in a giant puddle. They have so much fun drawing themselves that they decide to venture out and make the most of the rainy weather.

The illustrations are bright and simple. The story is fun and captures a child’s perspective wonderfully. The wording is simple enough for some students to read on their own. Students will enjoy this book. It could be used as a read aloud by teachers talking about spring, weather or storytelling.
