A breathtaking non-fiction picture book about the water cycle.
Grahame Baker-Smith has worked in illustration for twenty years and in 2011 won the Greenaway Medal for his inspiring tale of fatherhood, FARTHER. He has also illustrated Pinocchio for The Folio Society.
The real triumph of this book is in the almost otherworldly scenes

Grahame Baker-Smith is a huge talent in picture book illustration, and his images of the natural world here are deep, vibrant and painterly, which will absorb slightly older picture book readers in their watery depths. * Book Trust *
Each spread is stunning, hugely evocative of the world waiting to be explored, and reminding us how precious is each drop of water * Reading Zone *
Perfect for enjoying, 'The Rhythm of the Rain' could be used as a way into work on rivers or the water cycle. It could also be used to inspire poetry and descriptive writing. Just beautiful! * North Somerset Teachers Book Award *
