What We're Reading - The Little Raindrop (with Giveaway)

It's National Storytelling Week and it just feels right that I share our What We're Reading post for the month since we love storytelling! 

This month Scarlet has been really enjoying The Little Raindrop by Joanna Gray, it's the perfect storytelling book for toddler and children starting to read on their own. The story follow The Little Raindrop through the entire water cycle from falling out of the cloud right through finding it's way to the ground and beyond. 

You can follow along on the adventure of The Little Raindrop as he travels through the various waterways in the river on his long journey. You can see all the animals and environments The Little Raindrop must travel in order to complete the water cycle. The book brings a big learning aspect of understanding where rain comes from and what the water cycle really is.

I love the art style in the book, it has the feel of a pencil drawing. There are no harsh outlines with colouring pencil completing the whole image giving a softer, more natural look to the whole book. This style really helps to give life to the water and the nature in the book. 

You can purchase The Little Raindrop from £4.80.

To Celebrate National Storytelling Week I have decided to hold a few giveaways over the next 4 days which will round out the end of the week. The first and biggest giveaway being for a copy of The Little Raindrop, a copy of Zoom, a wheely good book of colours from the My Little World range, an A5 colouring book, an A5 dot-to-dot book and a packet of 12 small colouring pencils.
