My Take on the Book
At some point in school, children usually learn about the water cycle and how important rain is to our Earth.In this story, Tippy, the raindrop, uses his problem solving skills to bring rain to the crops.
Tippy shows determination in his quest to find Puffy the Cloud. Tippy and Puffy illustrate cooperation and friendship as they solve the problems of returning to field to provide the crops with the water/rain they need.
This story could initiate a discussion with your child about the water cycle and its importance. You could also use the story to show how perseverance, friendship, and determination are important life long skills.
