From the author:

"I am just a raindrop, I am smaller than small. What am I doing here? I have no use at all..." So begins the story

of The Raindrop. In this adventurous journey, many Truths are uncovered which help the Raindrop remember the higher purpose of his life. This simple and heartfelt story, allows children and adults of all ages to remember the Truth of who they are.
My Review:

I found this book to be charming, with great rhythm and rhyme.  The story had a great message and purpose, but for my son who is almost four and has autism, it was way above his head... Words like hydrogen and oxygen were out of his vocabulary and made it more reasonable for older children.  The illustrations were beautiful and colorful and matched the story well.  I would suggest that this book would make a wonderful gift for an older child aged 6-8 and would make a wonderful addition to school libraries as both the message and the science work well together.

This book is one of seven written by this author and all have a wonderful message of belonging and place that resonate throughout the story.
