It starts to rain and thunder and the forest animals huddle in the hill hollow – all 10 of them (including a slightly smelly skunk). The rain clears and so do the animals as they try to avoid two sleeping bears. All ends well with a rainbow.
Rain means puddles…the more it rains, the bigger the puddles get! As a puddle grows bigger, so do the animals that jump in! A wonderful story with gentle illustrations.
A great big cloud was in the sky
He covered the sun and by and by
He sent the raindrops down below
Raindrops falling to and fro
How many raindrops can we count
1, 2, 3….
RAINBOW STEW –
After the rain comes the RAINBOW!
Ingredients you’ll need for Rainbow Stew…some colorful fruit & a black cauldron!
Take a red strawberry, put it in the pot
Stir it and stir it and stir it a lot.
Shall we take it out now? What will it be?
The prettiest red you ever did see…
