Read and find out about the ups and downpours of the water cycle! With colorful illustrations and engaging text, Down Comes the Rain is a fascinating look into the stages of the water cycle. After rain comes down, the sun comes out and dries the puddles. But the water isn’t gone. The heat from the sun has turned it into water vapor—it has evaporated. Eventually, this moisture in the air condenses to form new clouds. Soon the rain will fall again. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 4 to 6. It’s a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children. Featuring rich vocabulary bolded throughout the text, this brand-new edition of Franklyn M. Branley's 1997 title includes original illustrations by Mary Ann Fraser. This book also includes a glossary and a find out more section with an activity about the water cycle. Both the text and the artwork were newly vetted for accuracy by Don W. Hen and Dr. Sonia M Kreidenweis, Professor of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. This is a Level 2 Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science title, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards. Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.

This is a book about the effect of prostitution, whether physical or spiritual in nature, on the human spirit. It is also a story about the hope we have in Christ and the difference God makes in lives. Love can be sought after in both a right and a wrong way. One way it produces death to our beings while the other, it brings a new vibrancy to life. But its all a delicate balance and if were not careful, we can fall away from the life bringing love to the destructive kind. The Bible warns that when we think were standing, weve already fallen. Its when we feel were above people lost in worlds we deem as dirty and less than acceptable that were on the edge of the cliff. In truth, we all sin and make mistakes. Come share in Rain and Lances life journey dealing with the heartache and fallout of choosing a path away from God and His love for a life of self and gods of this world.
