At the center of the story is a pale blue cartoon raindrop. It spends most of the story plummeting toward Earth, as streaks and droplets peel off him, demonstrating its speed. 

But when flying begins to feel like falling, it can’t enjoy himself for fear that a big change is coming.

Readers will cheer for the little raindrop, experiencing his joys as well as its worries. This simple story uses spare text and art to explain the science of the water cycle, while happily showing that good things can result from change. 🌧️💧🌈


The debut of the Neil Johnson 🖊️ and Joel Chin 🎨, this book has a crisp, carefully produced feel, and it delivers its message with razor-sharp effectiveness. 

The illustrations are small vignettes that appear in the center of cream-colored pages, forcing readers to pay attention.
