The King Who Rained

The King Who Rained is about the trickiness of the English language, and that's why I like it. This book is both fun and a tiny bit educational, especially for young children. It is about a girl whose parents tell her things that she misunderstands, like "there was a king who rained for forty years." Of course, they meant "reigned" but the girl thought "rained." That's just one example--if you want more, read the book! The illustrations are really funny. They show what the girl thinks, not what is really being said.

This is a good book for kids five and up.
