David Shannon has written and illustrated another winner. The Rain Came Down is a special book where everyone is affected by the drenching rain. The raindrops set off a chain reaction of temper tantrums, bad moods, bickering, arguing and even fights. Soon enough there's a break in the clouds, the sun comes out and peace and cooperation is restored. This Bindle inspires great lessons in cause and effect but also invites children to make their own rainsticks and learn to enjoy the sweet sounds of rain against all the clatter.
