Susan and the Rain

It has been raining nonstop (not kidding) since Friday evening here in the Dallas area. Having to keep kids entertained at home for an entire weekend reminds me of this book that my mom would read to me when I was little. It was written in 1947 and I still have this book. It is called 'Susan and the Rain'.

It is about a young girl who plans to spend her day out at the farm doing things outside. When it rains, she turns very sad, until she receives a package in the mail with the cutest little plaid raincoat and umbrella set. Complete with rain boots. She ends up loving being able to go outside and enjoy the rain.

I attribute the fact that I LOVE rainy days to my love of this book growing up!

I have never heard of this book...It looks lovely. I will have to find one. I am hoping it rains here a lot this winter...we need it.
