Q: What were some of your favorite picture books as a kid? If you have kids, what are your favorites to read to them?



The Rainbabies by Laura Krauss Melmed

On a moonlit night. . .
In the magic of a moonshower, a childless couple finds a dozen tiny babies in a meadow. 
Written in classic folktale tradition, illustrated with astonishing paintings, 
The Rainbabies is woven from magic and moonbeams.

There are not enough words to even explain how much I love this story, and what it means to me. My daughter and I love it just as I loved it in the lap of my favorite Aunt who passed when Brenna was young. The story is of a couple who want children so badly that they follow an old wives tale about standing under the rain while the moon is out. And what happens next is a wonderful, heartwarming tale, and lots of ups and downs.
