My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The illustrations are bright and beautiful. There are two depths to the text and illustrations. It could be read simply as a story about a little girl who goes searching around the yard for her kitty during a rain storm. She encounters several different kinds of animals and insects while she searches. But there is also factual information about how different animals behave during a rain storm. Finally, at the end it is suggested that the reader go back and look at the illustration of the entire yard to find places a kitty might hide during a rain storm.
While I thought the rhyming text felt a bit forced at times, it made up for it in depth.
