In this beautifully written and illustrated book Ally goes on an adventure with her mother and grandmother in her own neighborhood. Ally and her family join others in the neighborhood to experience something few have a chance to discover. It is amazing what we can find if we just look around us.
There’s nothing to do on a rainy day—or so Ally thinks. But Mama says she’s seen something amazing, so despite Ally’s misgivings, she sets out on an adventure with her mother and grandmother. On her journey, she sees all sorts of things: dripping awnings, wet cardboard, splashing cars…but also earthworms, storm drain geysers, and oil slick patterns. And then they turn the corner, just in time to see a big crowd. What’s happening?
