• I LOVE the Rain (by @marparbri ❤️illustrated by Christine Davenier) is relatable (teachers: a great one for working on text-to-self connections!), and inspires us to get outside, play, and find the magic in a rainy day. It’s a perfect book for spring, and that's why it's one of our Books of the Month for April!⁣
⁣
We're excited to share this book with your family, and to help bring the story into your home, we'll be hosting a "Story Time with WinterKids" live on Facebook THIS THURSDAY at 1:15 PM (Eastern Time)!⁣
⁣
🔗Click the link in our bio to RSVP on Facebook and let us know you'll be joining us, and please invite other friends you think might be interested too!⁣
⁣
And, the link in our bio will also help you find our blog post featuring our books of the month for April, where you can find links to purchase on Amazon. Look for "Reading List".⁣
