They are raining high and low, fast and slow, upside down, and in a heap. There's a sheep, a snake, a guinea pig, a zebra, an elephant, and a grumpy hippopotamus. Then come an octopus and frogs. It's still raining more animals and down come a giraffe, duck, chickens, salamander, and a startled horse. Let's read this book to see what else is coming down.
