About the Book
Where Do the Animals Go When It Rains? was conceptualized after years of imaginary story telling every night at bedtime. Picking an animal together, the author would tuck her children into bed and create a story where the animals lived and what their world was like all through a child s eye. Since most animals live outside, Janet and her kids would make up rhymes about their surroundings and what happens to the animals when it would rain. The end result is her beautifully crafted book with illustrations by Daron Rosenberg. Where Do the Animals Go When It Rains? explores the following themes: 1. The myriad of weather and the effects on animals with climate change 2. Imagination has no boundaries 3. Reading with children is the best commonality and connector for all ages 4. Learning about animals from all over the world 5. Bonding time with child/parent "The book was created with my kids as a bedtime story based on their curiosities about animals what happens to them during certain weather conditions," says Crown. "I wanted the illustrations to be comforting, fun and engaging while inviting questions and thought."

Where Do The Animals Go When It Rains is her first title in a series of four children's books. All proceeds from this book will be donated to The Painted Turtle.

My Take on the Book
The authors have written a nice story for young children.So many children are curious about animals and especially where the animals take shelter in inclement weather. This story takes specific animals and not only tells you, but shows you through the illustrations created by Daron Rosenberg. I think children and adults will learn some new facts about animals from reading this delightful story.
