A bright, collage-style board book about all of the wonderful things you can do after a rainfall.
Once the rain stops, what is there to do but go outside and explore your newly wet and sparkly backyard? In this counting board book, young readers will discover all the things the rain brings out: one puddle, four butterflies, nine wiggly worms. Joanne Schwartz’s beautifully subtle text is complemented by Angela Doak’s collage-style artwork, made with bits of recycled paper and foil wrappers, giving the illustrations interesting layers of colour and texture. A great introduction to counting, After It Rains is also a fun introduction to all the activities you can do after the rain!
Angela Doak’s collage work is made up of found materials: fabric, candy and gum wrappers, misprints, junk mail and just about anything else that fits the image she’s making at the time.
