Creative imagery. Wasn't found of the flow of the text.

On a sunny day, they might look like trash, twigs, and other debris, but "when blue sky turns gray and it rains all day, that's when rain fish come out and play." Using leaves, cardboard, feathers, ticket stubs, and other objects that might gather in a rain-swept gutter, veteran picture book creator Lois Ehlert creates unusual, eye-catching fish collages to swim alongside her lively rhymes. Not only is Rain Fish a fun read-aloud, it may also serve as inspiration for budding young artists, and a reminder that beauty can be ephemeral: "You better look fast, because rain fish don't last."
