After rain comes down, the sun comes out and dries the puddles. But the water isn't gone. The heat from the sun has turned it into water vapor-it has evaporated. Eventually, this moisture in the air condenses to form new clouds. Soon the rain will fall again. Read on to find out all the ups and downpours of the water cycle!

Easy to read book about rain and where it comes from.
This book offered a great amount of information about the water cycle and what happens at the different steps throughout the process. Children are able to easily understand the basics of the water cycle through the kid friendly language the author uses. New vocabulary is introduced and explained well enough for children to grasp the ideas that are in this book.
With this book being eduicational yet fun at the same time it's great reading for my 4yr old. She loves these books.
Down Comes the Rain is a great book to use when teaching students about the water cycle. It discusses the different types of precipitation, different types of clouds, and the steps of the water cycle itself. I used this with my 1st grade class and it could be used with classes all the way up to 5th grade. I would recommend this as a teaching resource to all elementary teachers!
