Hesse, Karen

Il. by Jon J. Muth. ISBN 0-590-33125-6. New York: Scholastic Press, 1999. Unp. $15.95. Crisp illustrations and vivid prose take the reader to a special place where a young girl hopes for rain to cool her urban neighborhood from the scorching heat. Much to her delight, the drenching rain arrives. She and her friends celebrate by dancing in the streets; in the spirit of the moment, their mothers join the frolic. Ages 4-8.
