Saffy looks for rain ... and finds a friend! It’s a hot day. “Wait for the cool rain,” says Mommy. But Saffy doesn’t want to wait, so she searches for a rain cloud. After looking everywhere she finds a little elephant instead. He sprinkles her with water and she realizes she’s found something even better than rain—a new friend!
Created by nationally awarded graphic designer and author/illustrator Paola Opal, this book brings together Saffy the giraffe and Ollie the elephant from Opal’s acclaimed Simply Small series.
Praise for Saffy Looks for Rain:
[It] has a "question-answer mode," a language pattern very familiar to young children. This technique serves well to keep a toddler's attention span from wandering and assigns them the responsibility for the "answer." The story directly involves the child, which also enhances the confidence of the child to become an independent reader.

Engaging and Delightful
I have been purchasing Paola’s books for years for all the little people in my life. It is wonderful to see the delight on their faces and to watch them giggle at the stories. Paola is creative and touches the interets of these toddlers.
Very well done!
My one year old grand-daughter truly enjoys the story and pictures. Very well done.
