Review

 McCanna's carefully chosen words are nearly all onomatopoeia, a cacophony of water sounds that resonates on tongue and ear, demanding to be read aloud. . . . Beautiful. (Kirkus Reviews, STARRED)

McCanna’s use of onomatopoeic words helps the natural scenes come to life, as do the spare rhyming text; both will aid preemergent readers. The delightful full-spread illustrations and the size and colors of the text add to the mood of the prose. (School Library Journal)

A pitch-perfect selection for a drippy afternoon or for a tuck-in story after Mom or Dad has dragged home late from work. (The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books December 2016)

The rhythm of nature and the beauty of a rainfall and its aftermath suffuse this simple story, as enticing pictures and rhyming language encourage readers to follow an orange fox. Padding through the marsh, the fox passes animals of the wetlands. A lush vocabulary of onomatopoeic sounds abound: ducks “splish splosh swish slosh,” dramatic white rain droplets “drip drop, plip plop,” and the rushing river goes “trickle dribble gurgle burble babble bubble.” As the fox hurtles down the river—“POP!”—it goes down a cascade in the rapids and ends up in a log, as leaves and branches swirl in the wind. Finally, with a glorious “whoosh sigh,” a dazzling rainbow appears. The fox finds its family and joyfully leaps through the sparkle and glitter. Full-color spreads in realistic watercolor depict a changing landscape and the plant and animal life of the watershed. The afterword gives information on the aquatic ecosystems, the progression of the water cycle, and the habitat of the omnivorous fox. A joyful, gorgeous book.
