WHAT IS THIS BOOK ABOUT?

James finds his frustration mounting as time and again his plans are called off because of the rain. Finally pushed to the breaking point, he makes his voice heard:

“I was four and then five, pretty soon I’ll be seven.  I’m NOT staying inside until I’m eleven!”

It's the perfect reminder for everyone that sometimes in life, you just have to put your gumboots on and jump in with both feet!

PRAISE for Then it Rained


"First there are only 500,045 drops of rain, but as the child's plans keep getting ruined, that number jumps into the billions.  It's delightfully childlike hyperbole...Stranaghan captures the exhilaration, and sometimes the frustration, that comes with being a child."
