Split! Splat! - Amy Gibson and Steve Bjorkman

Split! Splat!
Amy Gibson (Author)
Steve Bjorkman (Illustrator)
ISBN 9780439587532

This book is a lot of fun. My oldest daughter loved it from the second she saw it and wants it to rain so she can act it out. It is the wonderful playful story of playing in the rain First the sound of rain while inside, then the sound of rain outside, then splashing and playing in the mud, to the sun coming out and a muddy mess in the house. The illustrations are done in a water-color-like style with softer shades but bright colors. The full page illustrations are awesome and the way the words are integrated into the pictures in different ways and with different sizes is also fun. This book became an instant favorite in our home and I am sure it will in yours also.
