Description

Tess knows that the only thing that can fix the listless vines, the crackling dry path, the broiling alleyway and her sagging mama, is a good, soaking rainstorm. "Come on, rain!" she whispers into the endless summer heat. When it finally comes, there is shouting and dancing as everyone and everything spring to life.

Standards:

RL.1.4. Identify words and phrases in stories or poems that suggest feelings or appeal to the senses.
RL.K.6. With prompting and support, name the author and illustrator of a story and define the role of each in telling the story.
