Little Bird does not like rain at all, so he always hunkers down in his nest on rainy days, thinking about tomorrow. And after a rainy day, tomorrow generally means puddles and the opportunity for Little Bird to take a bath. After he finds just the right puddle, his bath is continually interrupted, first by children playing ball, then by a girl jumping in puddles, and finally by a dog. By the time everyone is gone, so, too, is his puddle, so he has to find another source of water for his bath. Short but lyrical sentences are accompanied by engaging gouache illustrations that show Little Bird as the center of his urban universe. (Ages 2–4)
