Randy the Raindrop – I’m a little raindrop

Written by: Patty Jean Wiese

Illustrator: Kim Sponaugle

Publisher: Stormy Day Books

The book “Randy the Raindrop – I’m a little raindrop” is a kind of long rhyme that little kids could listen to, learn and enjoy; and something that a little older children could use as their first reading books. The book illustrates the journey of a small raindrop from sky to the earth and back again, visiting different continents and countries, making new friends, playing with them and having fun.

It is so interesting to read an account of the raindrop’s experiences when in normal life, we usually have no time to look at life but from our own perspective. How beautiful a naughty little raindrop looks, sitting on the head of a little child or in the middle of the handle bars of someone’s cycle! The pretty illustrations that accompany the text are no less praiseworthy. The exuberant and lively children and the happy raindrop in the pictures set the mood for the text.

The $10.95 that it costs to get this book will not go waste when mamma will see the delight on her kid’s face when reading this rhyme aloud to her/ him. And, yes, the best part is that it comes along a small package of stickers, tattoos and a couple of balloons!

So, enjoy!! And yes, whenever you see a raindrop, don't forget to say "Hi!"!


  1. Sounds like a very happy and entertaining book for kids. Loved the playfulness of words in your review too.
