Read the review

“Another book CD combo set from the Tangled Tunes series that is also very highly recommended is Rain, Rain, Go Away (978632903600, $25.49), by Steven Anderson, illustrated by Misa Saburi. This book introduces that familiar nursery rhyme song as follows: ‘On rainy days you get stuck inside. You can’t go out to play. And there are so many fun things to do outside. Sometimes, don’t you wish you could tell the rain to go away and it would? To try doing that, turn the page and sing along!’ Contrasting sunny and rainy paintings compare the day’s different moods and activities, including mother, father, brother, sister, friends, and pets. Rain, Rain, Go Away ends with a page of complete song lyrics, a vocal piano song score, an accompanying CD performance of the song, guided reading activities, and a To Learn More section listing related books for children ages 3-8.”
