Singing in the Rain

Singing in the Rain is a songbook based on the much-loved song by Arthur Freed and Nacio Herb Brown that has been beautifully illustrated by Tim Hopgood. Tim Hopgood celebrates the rain and all its fun in his latest book. Jump in puddles, pop up your umbrellas and dance with joy through the pages of this gorgeous story.

The pictures support the lyrics beautifully and I found myself singing the song to Georgie rather than just reading the book.   The colours are bright and cheerful and all the characters are smiling. The illustrations really give the feeling that rain can be fun!

A happy and uplifting book where even the rain drops on each page put a smile on our faces. Georgie now keeps singing ‘What a glorious feeling. I’m happy again’ while she skips through the rain…very cute for a 3-year-old.

I think these songbooks are a great idea and I can’t wait to see which classic song Tim Hopgood will choose next.
