Maxwell the raindrop had fallen from a silver cloud and landed on a thirsty flower yesterday and in the morning he could feel the warmth of the sun pulling him back into the air. As he rose higher, he felt warmer and began wondering what was happening to him. He could see many raindrops around him rising in the air and changing into vapor. They were all excitedly talking to each other and, after a few moments, Maxwell realized that they had landed inside the cloud who told him he had become vapor. The cloud told Maxwell that although he had changed, he was still himself and he just looked different.

Maxwell the Raindrop: Am I Still Me? by Joseph Moore is an adorable story about growth and change and also teaches young readers the journey of a raindrop in different seasons. Children will learn to adapt and adjust quickly after seeing the journey of Maxwell the raindrop. Jaclyn Donnelly's illustrations make the concept clear, bring the characters to life, and give Maxwell a personality that will be remembered by readers. It is a good story for tutors and parents to use for storytelling and read-aloud sessions in classrooms and homes to help children look at growth and change in a positive way. Both books in the Maxwell the raindrop series can be kept in personal collections at homes and in libraries because of the wonderful messages conveyed to readers.
