After it Rains

A Counting Book

  Author:   Joanne Schwartz  
  Artist :   Angela Doak    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing Limited

A bright, collage-style board book about all of the wonderful things you can do after a rainfall, from the author of Town is By the Sea & illustrator of Atlantic Animal ABC.

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!
