Even when it’s pouring rain, Malcolm can’t bring himself to stay inside. He puts on his red boots and his red coat, pulls on his goggles, and heads out for an adventure. He splashes around the yard, jumps in puddles, and gets tickled by worms. But when Malcolm’s done playing he runs right through the mud and right through the sand—and right through the house! Mom’s not impressed. How is this silly boy going to fix his mess?
Rich Farr’s energetic illustrations add the perfect touch of whimsy to Paige Feurer’s simple yet lively text. And Then It Rained on Malcolm is the perfect read-aloud book for even the squirmiest kids and is sure to get everyone giggling over Malcolm’s silly antics and his clever thinking. Enthusiastic lovers of Malcolm’s adventure might plead for permission to go outside the next time it rains—and even if they race through the house with muddy boots and dripping raincoats afterwards they’ll know how to clean up the mess!
