What has more play potential than a rainy day? Peep and Ducky return in a splashy story that begs to be read aloud.
When Peep visits Ducky on a rainy day, the little pals have no trouble finding things to do. Inside, there is a tent to build and a pillow fight to be had. And outside, with the help of galoshes and umbrella, it’s fun to captain a boat—until a whoosh of wind and a clap of thunder sends them running back in! Perfectly tuned to a toddler sensibility, this exuberant tale will enchant both listener and reader.

Praise for Peep and Ducky Rainy Day
Totally in tune with toddlers, this snappy read-aloud gets it right.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Once again, these two buddies provide a concise, realistic portrait of the ups, downs, and compromises inherent to friendship.
This makes a perfect read-aloud for story hours or lapsits, especially for preschoolers just beginning to navigate friendship interactions.
Children will have fun looking at the pictures and the text works well as a one-on-one read or as a selection for a rain-themed storytime.
