This charming and imaginative book playfully pairs works of art with onomatopoeia and graphics as a fun way to introduce pre-schoolers to art-although it's also sure to appeal to animal lovers of all ages.

Children will develop early word-recognition skills through onomatopoeic associations and learn how to visually read works of art and the world around them through graphic associations. The paintings, photographs, prints, drawings, and sculptures featured in Raining Cats and Dogs will also introduce children to the diversity of works of art on those most familiar of family pets, cats and dogs.
