Beautiful art depicting a rainy day, but the magic here happens more in the text. The author takes the reader from sameness and nothingness to a world of discovery. A child learns to be in the present moment to the natural world, and then to her mother when they share some hot chocolate. The child loses her computer game, but gains so much more. Good for a quiet moment shared together.
