The Raindrop Who Couldn't Fall earns the CLC Seal of Approval

The Raindrop Who Couldn't Fall is the story of Plink, a young raindrop who dreams of falling from the sky to water the flowers, and even someday to become part of a beautiful rainbow. But sadly, no matter how hard she tries, she just can't seem to fall from the clouds.  Finally, she goes to her grandmother who helps her understand that when the time is right, she will be able to achieve her dreams.

Author Kirsti Call has crafted a heartwarming story that will appeal to youngsters who all can relate to wanting to do something that is challenging.  She touches on the frustrations kids feel, along with the joy of finally achieving one's goals.  Illustrations by Lisa M. Griffin are expressive and delightfully charming.

Side notes on the science of rain are a nice addition to this book which also includes a glossary and projects in the back.  This is a book young children will want to read again and again.
