A little boy slowly gets wet. Then quickly. He notices that the rain gets everything wet. His fish is always wet. Paint is sometimes wet. He discovers many different ways to get wet.
This book has beautifully simple watercolor illustrations, similar to Mo Willem's style. The narrative is also written with a simple, direct tone and blunt humor. This book is a good starting point for discussing different ways young children experience and think about wetness. It would also be good for children who are almost ready to read, as the book is easy to follow along, simple sentence structure, and no hard words. Regardless of whether you take the book one step further or simply use it for story time, it is wonderfully done and an enjoyable read.
