Rain Makes Applesauce

Rain Makes Applesauce
One of TIME's 100 Best Children's Books of All Time! My House goes walking every day... and rain makes applesauce. Oh, you're just talking silly talk! So begins this award-winning collection of nonsense verse and images. A story-hour favorite since it was first published in 1964, this beloved read-aloud has been carefully remastered to bring back the rich, vivid details of its Caldecott Honor-winning artwork. Featuring an introduction by Caldecott Medalist Jerry Pinkney, Rain Makes Applesauce is popular both as a bedtime story and as a go-to title for elementary teachers of creative writing. Created by the unique team of legendary NASA publicist Julian Scheer and illustration master Marvin Bileck, this influential picture book has inspired artists and writers, as well as young children creating their own nonsense stories, for more than 50 years.
