Reviews

"It starts out as a promising morning for a child, with a father-made breakfast of sunny-side up eggs . . . But when Daddy raises the shades, there's no sunshine outside . . . Through a combination of her own ingenuity and parental nudging, the . . . child comes up with activities to make time pass . . . and an internal sunniness returns."--Publishers Weekly
"A rainy day dashes a young child's plans, but with dad's help delight can be found in playing indoors. . . . Rhyming text perfectly captures a young child's desire for independence and control over choices . . . Full of warmth and love. . . . A perfect addition to the rainy-day bookshelf, where joy can be found indoors, knowing the sun will shine again."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Looking forward to playing outside . . . [a girl is] disappointed to find it's raining and she'll be stuck inside. . . . [She] uses her well-stocked imagination to create games to play by herself . . . The appealing soft-hued pastel illustrations incorporate a variety of patterns, and subtle details add even more interest . . . This beautiful rainy-day tale, told in a gentle rhyming text, may give youngsters ideas for their next housebound day."--Booklist
