When I grew up the world was much 'larger' than the world of todays generation of children. Digital and virtual technology too often glues them to the couche at home. As a child I loved to go out and explore. It did not matter if the sun was shining or it rained. With this little story I would like to show readers that going out, even when it is raining can be a great adventure. There is so much to see, learn and experience. For instance not all animals shelter from the rain, there are also animal that love the rain and specifically come out of hiding for it!
