Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

When Sarah and her younger brother Charlie go to stay with their grandparents, it rains for days. At first, they have fun exploring inside the big, old house, but eventually they want to explore outside, too. "Where does the rain come from?" Sarah asks her grandfather, Big T. He promises to show her once it stops raining.

When the storm passes, Sarah, Big T., Charlie and Keeper the dog go exploring. They jump in puddles, draw a puddle map and finally find the biggest puddle in the world!

Mark Lee's lively story is an introduction to the water cycle for young readers. Nathalie Dion's soft illustrations show the fun, loving relationship between Big T., Sarah and Charlie.

From The Publisher*Sarah and Charlie hunt down the biggest puddle in the world with their grandfather in this fun introduction to the water cycle, perfect for young readers.
Review Quote*

Praise for The Biggest Puddle in the World: "The text is gentle and sweet . . . . Familial love, nature appreciation, and a bit of natural science." - Kirkus Reviews

Praise for 20 Big Trucks in the Middle of the Street: "The very fact of trucks-let alone their variety and different purposes-gives a thrill to certain 3- to 6-year-olds. For these children, Mark Lee's ‘20 Big Trucks in the Middle of the Street' will be handsome entertainment." Wall Street Journal "Counting books in verse are plentiful, but this one stands out. The words roll off the tongue, a good thing, as children will demand to hear it again and again." School Library Journal
