This children’s story picture book is about a little girl called Rosemary. Rosemary is bored and has no one to play with, she is stuck inside her bedroom on a rainy day. Through her bedroom window she sees lots of fun garden animals who she says hello to and they become her rainy day friends. Rosemary uses her imagination to explore her interaction with these new animal characters and her surrounding environments. When the rain stops she goes outside to meet them and is surprised at the end of the story by an amazing rainbow.
Each individual illustration is hand-painted in original watercolour. There is a conservationist theme which is explored and illustrated through the use of fun filled animal characters and surrounding environments. This gives energy and vibrancy to the illustrations and the movement of the story, capturing a child’s imagination.
This story picture book is aimed at 3 to 8 year olds. Younger children can enjoy this book by looking at the pictures and paintings on their own, learning to read it as they get older with their parents, adults, siblings and friends. Until eventually children are old enough to read and explore the book on their own, fully interacting with the story and concept of the book.
