Note: This is a review of a book that is currently out of print.
Shame, shame, shame! Yes indeed. That this little gem from Dorothy Edwards is out of print verges on criminal neglect of a treasure. We used to read this to our eldest son, and our other two children when they came along, and it was so loved we were all word perfect on it! In fact, we, and our kids, still quote snippets from it. No, it’s not a complex story, or life changing or deeply moral. It is, however, something we can al relate to. As such, that makes it a perfect book for kids, who love familiar things, consistency. The title says it all – almost. And, believe it or not, many modern parents could actually learn a secret known to past generations and every child – rain isn’t the end of all fun. It doesn’t cement you into the home!
This book richly deserves the same notoriety as Dorothy Edwards’ “Naughty Little Sister” tales. It should be brought back to print without delay!
I would award more if it was possible, but I have to settle for 5 stars!
If you have children or grandchildren, or have any cause to read to children, this is a book well worth getting! There are copies for sale, through the likes of Amazon.
