About book: Summary: "Discover the joys of a wild rainstorm in this poetic picture book, illustrated by a Caldecott Medalist. Join a farming family as they experience the full range of a thrilling seaside thunderstorm—from the wild wind and the very first drops; to the pouring, pouring rain; to the wonderful messy mud after the sun returns! With gentle, rhyming text and vivid artwork from a Caldecott Medal–winning illustrator, this sublime depiction of nature’s patterns turns a storm into a celebration." Simon and SchusterPub.: 2014Theme: rhyming text, rain, thunderstorms, adjectivesLibrary Use: Nice intro to a writing prompt describing weather. Incredible detail in the illustrations and a story that flexes to fit a lot of interests and age groups. The scratchboard medium that earned Beth Krommes a Caldecott for "The House in the Night" takes color surprisingly well, just as it did in her other well known work, Swirl By Swirl. Blue on Blue has a folk art mood that matches its small farm setting. I did think the breaching whale at the end was a bit incongruous, though.

I like this illustrator's style, and she makes art out of a simple text. Together it's beautiful.
