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. When he sprinkles her with water 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:
Saffy Looks for Rain 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.

Cute & empowering!
I love the Saffy books because they are about young kids learning and growing and connecting. And the art is gorgeous!
