And Red Galoshes A Story About A Rainy Day, by Glenda Millard and Jonathan Bentley With its gentle sing song cadence, this Australian picture book pairs rhyming poetry and everything fun and lovely to do outside on a rainy day, with red galoshes.  Perish the thought of staying indoors when there is so much magic outdoors. Each page is a sweet invocation to whimsy and childhood imagination.  It’s a warm, inviting world waiting out there, with red galoshes.  You will be unable to help yourself from singing this book rather than simply reading it, and I challenge you not to feel happy after reading it to your children.  I can see them calling out ‘And red galoshes!’ every second page. The illustrations are beautiful…
