Beautifully illustrated, this picture book takes the reader to a rural setting where a sunny day is interrupted by a thunderstorm that rolls on off the sea and drenches the farm.

After quite a downpour the sun fights through the clouds and the day ends on a warm note, although it is rather wet outdoors. The two children who live on the farm naturally go outdoors with their puppies and play in the puddles.

The text is very sparse but that's not a major concern as you will purchase this book because you are attracted to the art. This is the kind of book I'd keep handy to pull out when a storm threatens to ruin a day.

Let your child page through it looking at the pictures, or you can sit down together and share it. Either way, you'll find Blue on Blue to be a good way of showing your little one that storms don't last long and there will soon be sunshine again!
