One rainy day, a little boy is upset because he can't go out and play. His mom comes up with a way to keep him entertained--by drawing a picture of herself and him going outside, playing in the rain, and splashing in a giant puddle. They have so much fun drawing themselves that they decide to venture out and make the most of the rainy weather.
This is the classic, "I'm bored", scenario. It's raining outside and there is nothing to do. Completely relateable for both kids and parents. Of course, the mother doesn't do anything terribly extraordinary other than take some time to draw and play with her child, but it is a cute book that is perfect for a mother who wants to engage with her kid. An opportunity to draw together perhaps?
