Children's Book Review: The Miracle of Rain

The Miracle of Rain, by Sherry Rossman, is a wonderful children's book. I was provided an ebook copy (a PDF version) of the book to review and read it to little Brandon. One night, we sat together with the computer laptop on my bed and We've read it together as a bedtime story. Brandon seemed very interested and quietly sat beside me while I read it to him. During the story, he sometimes asks me "Then what happened?" He's just anxious and wanting to know what was going to happen in the story.

The story is about a girl named Nora and her cat Molly, who were terribly frightened by the rain storm. It rained all of a sudden while they went out for a walk. Later, they bumped into a raccoon named Smickette who takes them to a safe place. He explains to Nora and Molly why rain and water is very useful.

Kids can learn to overcome their fears of storms, thunder, and/or lighting as well as the importance of rain. We tell our children not to be afraid and that it's okay. That's part of nature. I would tell Brandon it's like a storm party just like how the story describes. And if he ever hears thunder, make a clap (pretending to be as loud too).

About the Author:

Sherry Rossman grew up in Rimrock, Az in the block house that her parents built with their own hands. Along with her two brothers and a few neighbor friends, she ran around the land to her hearts content. Javelinas, rabbits, coyotes and various other wildlife were constant visitors, and more frequent than human ones in the '70's and 80's. This was where her love and connection to animals grew. It is also where she saw and believed in the beautiful workmanship and wonder of God.

Sherry was introduced to the love of reading by her parents, who read to her and taught her the value of a good book. Among the bookshelves in her childhood home sat books or vestiges of family members who penned their own legacy of life such as Andrew Lytle, Charles Darwin and Sidney Lanier. These books were living proof that the love of the written word ran deep and echoed inspiration and passion in abundance.
