The Rain Stomper Addie Boswell Eric Velasquez

The Rain Stomper by Addie Boswell illus. by Eric Velasquez
This picture book is rhythm filled with gorgeous illustrations. I love it. Jazmin is ready to twirl her baton in the big parade. Then the rain comes. Tired of watching it, Jazmin goes outside armed with her baton to stomp out the rain.

Jazmin worked it out before she even got to the sidewalk. While kicking the the rain down the apartment steps, Jazmin does a very nice broadway leg kick.

The Rain Stomper was meant to be read out loud. Boswell's text has such a beautiful flow, with wonderful action. Velasquez illustrations are amazing.

I am going to stop here because I won't do this picture book enough justice. So please check out the google preview
