A young girl pleads with the sky for rain to end the sweltering heat of summer. Her whole city neighbor- hood is waiting and melting! Then, when clouds roll in and the rain pours down, everyone dances for joy and readers can't help but feel the refreshment vicariously and remember the last time they experienced a lovely summer rainstorm.
"This is an impressive tribute to those experiences that leave us "purely soothed,/ fresh as dew,/ turning toward the first sweet rays of the sun." (Publisher's Weekly)
