Oogie’s Raindy Day Adventure is an fantastic book that is beautifully written (by Michael Weinberger) and has the cutest illustrations (by Steve Bonham). The story is written in a way that young children will understand it’s meaning and they’ll learn the message that the author is trying to convey. It’s a fairly easy read and is one of those books that your children will repeatedly ask to read (or you to read to them). It’s a great addition to my grandchildren’s library.

    I like a children’s book with a good story line and beautiful illustrations like this one. I am trying to expand my grandchildren’s library and this would be a good addition .

  2. I like this book too and kids can really relate the dilemma, since most have run out of their fave food at some time. I always thought today’s kids would have problems with stick-to-it-tiveness, since we live in such an immediate gratification society. I know I’ve seen my share of temper tantrums in the stores and parents could really use a book like this to drive the point home.
