About the Author

Lola M. Schaefer is the author of several books for children, including An Island Grows; Pick, Pull, Snap! Where Once a Flower Bloomed, an NCTE Notable Children's Book in the Language Arts; and What's Up, What's Down She lives with her husband, Ted, in the mountains of north Georgia, where she occasionally observes the back end of a black bear, coyote, or gray fox.


PreS-Gr 1-Schaefer and Wickstrom capture the excitement a child experiences when he realizes that his tooth is loose. With a few words, lots of repetition, some rhyme, and good rhythm, this story is perfect for beginning readers. The cartoon illustrations add details to the plot and create interest. Expressions of curiosity, joy, and fear (of the pliers Brother suggests as a remedy) clearly portray the feelings of the narrator. A fine choice for those just starting on the exciting road to reading.-Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Praise for THIS IS THE RAIN: "As essential to library collections as rain is to summer sunflowers."--Kirkus Reviews
