  Raindrops: A Shower of Colours
  Reviewed by Irene S. Roth




          Raindrops is a fun and versatile board book that is a
           learning experience for kids of all ages. This concept
           book explores how primary colors magically blend to
           create secondary ones. There are die-cut raindrops with
           a see-through shaded acetate on each page of the book.
           When the acetates are layered on top of each other, a
           new color magically appears.
           The book displays a cute an cuddly array of animals
           on each page spread, all trying to escape the rain. And
           each one has an adorable accessory. One has a
           pinwheel, another a fancy hat, and still another a bright
           umbrella. The book is truly a colorful kaleidoscope of
           different shades and textures that will completely
           mesmerize preschoolers and older kids alike.
           This is a also great book to teach kids the names of
           certain colors and animals. My little step niece
           especially loved the raindrop windows. Although this
           book is really for kids as young as 2 years old, it is a
           book that could grow with your child.
