Lexile measure:
From the sheeting downpour of a city rainstorm to the soft drops that filter through a forest's canopy, this is an exploration of all that is beautiful about the rain. A man on his way home from work watches the streaks run their way across the train window. Children playing in the woods search for baby fish in the falling drops they catch in their hands. A woman wakes from an afternoon snooze and is inspired by the wet flowers and by the water bouncing off the sidewalk to open her long-dry box of watercolors. Michael Laser's mild text and Jeffrey Greene's detail-rich pastels masterfully evoke the easy, contented sense of a damp afternoon.
