Author Biography

I was born in South Africa, an extraordinary country with a rainbow of nations and spectacular scenery. I shared my childhood with my sister, two brothers, and Italian parents who showed us how beautiful life is with the unconditional love and support of family. In my youth I spent countless hours fantasizing about traveling to strange lands and solving the world’s problems, winning over both people and animals.

My husband and I met in Johannesburg and we have two amazing children. Watching them grow is an incredible blessing. They have taught me so much and they are constantly surprising me! Among the treasures I hold closest to my heart are the cherished moments reading stories and sharing quiet moments at the end of a busy day.

In 2022 we moved to Canada. Africa will always have a part of my heart, but we have embraced our new home, with its exquisite landscapes, remarkable seasons and friendly people. We have settled in a quiet neighborhood which is home to rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks and birds. I am fortunate to be surrounded by beautiful forests, lakes, gardens and an abundance of ever-changing beauty. I feel the most alive when I am writing, spending time with family, or exploring nature.

I wrote this book to encourage children to develop a deep appreciation of the role that water plays in our environment, and I wanted to do that in a fun way that children can relate to.

    Book Review

Reviewed by Philip Van Heusen for Readers' Favorite

Water plays such an important role in sustaining life that we need to teach our children as much as we can about the water cycle and how to conserve water. Adele Lamothe understands how vital this information is and wrote a fun little book called Two Little Raindrops: A Fun Adventure Inspired by Nature. The two raindrops are Splish and Splash who travel the fascinating journey through the water cycle and invite all children to join them in their fun. Starting in the clouds, Splish and Splash fall to the ground as rain. They miss their family and friends in the clouds but how will they ever get back up into the clouds? Read this book and find out how they return to their place in the sky.

Adele Lamothe makes science fun in Two Little Raindrops, a rhyming, picture book for children ages 3 through 8. I think even older children will enjoy this book. The science of the water cycle is first told in easy-to-understand words and then shown in an understandable diagram. Children will enjoy reading and learning about how nature keeps the earth watered and the important role that they play in protecting the environment. Adele hopes this book will bring a new outlook on weather to your children. This book is an excellent introduction to one of the most vital cycles in nature. Use this book to launch a discussion with your children about the various types of precipitation and how rain helps keep plants alive. As a former science teacher, I highly recommend this book for all children.

When their cloud becomes dark and heavy during a spring storm, two little raindrops named Splish and Splash embark on a lively adventure.

Upon jumping out of the cloud, they find themselves on land and separated from their family. Together, they decide to find their way home and rejoin their family.

After a transformative experience, they complete their voyage through the water cycle by evaporating and forming a cloud with their family in the sky.

To begin with, I absolutely adore the names of the two characters, Splish and Splash. Another thing I appreciated was how Adele introduced them to the reader. “Two little friends, tiny droplets so light. Lived in a cloud which was puffy and white. One was called Splish, he had eyes like a fish, and one was called Splash with a fancy mustache.”

The charming characters in this story make it a fun and educational way for children to learn about the water cycle!

Like water in the story, the words have a lyrical flow and are pleasant to the ear. The A-B rhyming pattern, deliberately chosen, enhances the fun factor for young readers.

Phonological awareness, a prerequisite for reading, can also be introduced by pointing out the rhyming words. When the read-aloud is complete, readers can compose a list of words that rhyme with splish and splash.

Another little feature I enjoyed was the specific placement of certain words. For example, downhill is written diagonally as if the words were tumbling downward. This technique is sure grab the readers’ attention and have them searching for more unusually placed words.

Tu's illustrations are full of life and an absolute riot. Youngsters are sure to giggle at the hilarious expressions of the main characters.

I really enjoyed the usage of targeted vocabulary and the simplified diagram of the water cycle as well as the tips offered on water conservation.

My daughter absolutely enjoyed every element of the story. She loved the adorable ‘Splish & Splash’ characters and their journey and she really enjoyed reading the book to her baby sister. The amazing activity pack available on the writers website was a big bonus for the kids.
