Taste The Raindrops

"I want to go walking in the rain, but it's always the same... My mother says, 'No!'" So complains a little blond headed boy who longs to hear the rain on his umbrella, feel the wetness on his face, and taste the raindrops on his tongue....Mother's decision to let her little son out won't really be a surprise against such an upbeat mood, but the sight of her joining him in his fun will warm the hearts of many young viewers. A perky, low-key celebration."  ALA Booklist 4/83
