God is in the Rain - A Book Review

GodIsInTheRainI was asked to review the book GOD IS IN THE RAIN by Arleen Naish Jennings. This is the review that I gave the book and I am not being paid to give this review):

This is a really cute young children’s book with adorable illustrations. This came out of a personal fear of storms and the author didn’t want her own child to be afraid like she did. Many of the illustrations were by her own hand.

This book was filled with lots of words to use for vocabulary development including a glossary at the back of the book. The author gives simple definitions for the words which would allow for a lot of discussion between an adult and children. Topics for discussion besides just weather could include safety while playing, seasons, vitamins, the water cycle, different climates, the life cycles of plants, fruit and vegetables, and the color wheel. There is a great explanation about Noah and the ark.
I could see this book in a Sunday school classroom or even a book for a parent to have in the home. The many topics touched upon in this book would be great for family discussions or even in a Sunday school classroom.
