It’s Raining Cats! It’s Raining Dogs! It’s Raining Bats! And Pollywogs!
Sherry West, author

One very unusual day, it rains, but not the kind that’s expected…

“The heavens opened and down they sent one quite noisy elephant!”

And so, begins a very hilarious downpour of confused, amused, bemused, grumpy, frumpy, mumpy, lumpy, highly annoyed, and patiently suffering zoo full of animals onto an unseen town down below!

“We have to duck and run for cover while chickens cluck and near us hover! They’re raining fast all over town! I wonder what else is coming down???”

Parents and educators alike enjoy reading this hilarious, highly-engaging and appealing book with its lyrical text and giggly-wiggly pictures to children, who quickly and easily acquire important language and reading skills along their merry way.
