Book Summary:

"I am just a raindrop, I am smaller than small. What am I doing here? I have no use at all..." So begins the story of The Raindrop. In this adventurous journey, many Truths are uncovered which help the Raindrop remember the higher purpose of his life. This simple and heartfelt story, allows children and adults of all ages to remember the Truth of who they are.

My Thoughts:

** Like all my Kiddie Reviews I base them on my children's reaction.

From the kids' POV:

They liked the story and the "pictures." It kept their interest, and my 7 year old liked the fact that it was also about the water cycle that they've studied in school.

Mom's POV:

I liked this one...it reflected Mr. McClure's writing style which emphasizes a common theme. That theme being that we are all connected.

Not only is this a GREAT way to easily teach your child about the water cycle, it also shows how we must all work together. The book taught a great lesson about how we may be small and feel unimportant, but we are all significant in the big picture.

Overall, I thought this one was awesome!
