“One day, a little cloud in the sky woke up feeling grey.” Too Many Raindrops, by Kylie Yapp, is a wonderful children’s book that lets children know it is okay to feel a little grey some days. This is an excellent book for kids (and adults) to read and understand that when you are weighed down, it can sometimes be too much to carry on your own. Much like a cloud filled with raindrops, the analogy is perfect for illustrating coping with grief, depression, or just having a bad day. Like our little cloud friend, children can be left feeling that something is wrong with them on days like this. But with the help of his mother, our grey little cloud is able to make it through until the sun rises again. Talking about feelings can be a struggle for children. I am so glad that Kylie Yapp has given us Too Many Raindrops to help them understand.
I applaud Kylie Yapp for writing Too Many Raindrops, and I have great expectations for this book. The writing is visually appealing and contains child-friendly vocabulary and concepts. The illustrations are gentle and supplement the story very well. Even though this is Kylie Yapp’s first children’s book, I sincerely hope that there will be many more to come. As both a parent and an educator, I think that more books like Too Many Raindrops are exactly what our children need. Overall, this is an excellent start to a very promising career in children’s literature for Kylie Yapp.
