Children Ages 4-6 • 6 min. • Unabridged • © 2000

What can happen on a rainy Saturday? Plenty. What begins with some chickens squawking ends with a block full of frustrated and angry people as one thing leads to another. Bruce Johnson's gentle cadence is reassuring amid the tumult. He reads clearly and slowly so that young readers can follow along as the music and sound effects bring the story to life and give it depth. The upbeat music and Johnson’s increasing tempo mimic the story's building tension without making the listener feel tense. An effective moment of silence at the story's climax allows the listener to feel the characters’ relief when the sun finally comes out and the day returns to normal.
