Sunday Rain

We rated this book:


Elliott and his family have moved to a new house. While Elliott is in his room reading a book, a storm comes through, with wind whooshing and branches knocking against the house. When Elliott looks out the window, he sees some children playing. His mother, who is busy unpacking moving boxes, suggests that Elliott go outside and make some new friends while she gets on with her work. Elliott puts his boots on and takes his boat out to play in the puddles of the Sunday rain, which makes the world smell so wonderful. As soon as Elliott puts his boat in a puddle, the other children join him and their imaginations take over.
