In glorious onomatopoeia, Tim McCanna takes the reader on a dazzling journey as a fox seeks shelter from a rainstorm.

Drip
Drop

Plop
Pitter
Patter
Pat.

As the rain begins, a little fox seeks shelter. But then it builds and builds into to a torrential storm.

Wash! Wham!
Lash! Whirl!
Bash! Swirl!
Hiss! Slap! Slam!

Both a visual feast and a joy to read aloud, this stunning picture book showcases the power and beauty of nature.

Hardcover, 32 pages

Super terrific illustrations! The text is limited to single words as readers follow a fox during a rain storm. Enjoyable to read over and over; this book is a keeper 🙂

The last page is an informative page about water. A good resource for the classroom.

Paper back, 96 pages, Zondervan.

Wonders of Creation explores the wonders of our created world though detailed black-and-white illustrations—each one ready to be filled with the hues of your imagination. From amazing Eden-esque gardens to the creatures God made that still ramble through our world, this ninety-six-page book offers hours of coloring inspiration and relaxation for any age.

Adult coloring books have recently become very popular. And this is the nicest of them that I’ve seen. It must be that I like this particular collection of plants and animals. Most of the coloring scenes are a single page design. Some are a double page spread. The printing is on both sides of the page. No text. Quality paper and ink (no smudging when coloring).

A relaxing and a creative outlet for adults. Ages 8 and up.
