Drip, Drop, Plink. The rain stops and Levi runs outside to play in a stream of rain water. But Polly puts an end to his fun when she doesn't want to share. It's a puddle fight! Until they see that the water is disappearing fast. Truce! They find a way to save the water and discover that it is more fun to play together. After the Rain puts a new twist on the rainy-day picture book about sharing and learning to work together.
