In Rodney Robbins and the Rainy-Day Pond by Kim Stegall, a young boy and his neighbor team up to solve a neighborhood problem. This picture book is for pre-readers and early readers. Whimsical illustrations and simple sentences make it an age-appropriate and enjoyable read-aloud.
Every time it rains, the street in front of Mr. Hamilton’s house becomes a pond. The pond is taking over the neighborhood, but the City Works department won’t fix the problem. So Rodney Robbins and Mr. Hamilton decide to fix it themselves—in a very unusual way.
