Following the opening sounds of gentle rain, narrator Suzanne Toren shares the many snippets of meteorological information that Gibbons presents in this nonfiction title for young listeners. Toren maintains a steady pace and a quietly animated voice as she talks about types of rain and clouds, the water cycle, rainstorms, variations in rainfall in different parts of the world, preparedness for rain and storms, post storm cleanup, and rainbows. Given that Toren's task involves both the storyline and the factual information in the accompanying text boxes and glossary, the flow of the narration can feel disjointed. This can be remedied by both careful listening and following along with the read-along book. A.R. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2016]
