Booklist - 02/01/2021 As her mother leaves early one morning, a small girl eats sunny-side up eggs prepared by her father. She's been looking forward to playing outside and is temper-tantrum levels of disappointed to find it’s raining and she’ll be stuck inside. “When the thunderclouds go clap / Daddy pulls me to his lap. / He hugs me and holds me tight / and says playing inside will be all right.” After being soothed, the girl uses her well-stocked imagination to create games to play by herself, such as making a “clubhouse” under a tablecloth, baking make-believe muffins for stuffed animals, building block towers and demolishing them, and reading, of course. The appealing soft-hued pastel illustrations incorporate a variety of patterns, and subtle details add even more interest—a headboard and footboard depict the rising and setting sun, while a hanging mobile made of clouds, raindrops, a rainbow, and a sun follows the progression of the day. This beautiful rainy-day tale, told in a gentle rhyming text, may give youngsters ideas for their next housebound day. - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
