More About the Book: Pitter-patter, splutter-splatter, drizzle turns to roar…DOWNPOUR! But where do all those raindrops go? Dirty stormwater runoff can cause big problems, polluting rivers, ponds, and waterways, so this classroom plans and builds a rain garden. They collect excess water in barrels, create paths for waterflow with stones and bricks, and plant native flowers and grasses that help the water percolate and invite wildlife to feed and pollinate.

With Michelle Schaub’s lively, engaging storytelling, and Blanca Gómez’s bright, beguiling illustrations, A Place for Rain provides an upbeat approach to an important environmental issue, and empowers readers with the tools to reduce pollution, diminish flooding, and create a habitat for wildlife. Informational backmatter includes resources for readers to build their own rain garden.
