A Review of Catching Raindrops.
Before I start telling you about the book, I would like to introduce you to the author! Her name is Crystal and she is my cousin! So yes, I am going to brag a little. 🙂
I remember being young preteens and Crystal, her younger sis Kaylee and I would hang out every chance we got. One thing we did was write. I remember writing very elaborate stories about; I kid you not, Our Cats! Oh yes. 🙂 Then we would read them out loud to each other and giggle and giggle. 🙂
Crystal’s dream even then was to be an author. I wasn’t so much interested, I would start one thing and in the middle of it, start something else. But Crystal has persevered and now has a published book with her name on the front!
So, who is Catching Raindrops written for?
Catching raindrops is the story of the Dayton Ohio Flood of 1913, following a young 12 year old, as she and her family try to survive.
A historical fiction book written for 8 to 14 year olds, but make no mistake, I enjoyed it as well. 🙂 The story is well written and flows in an easy to read style. Books like this one, was the way I learned history as a child. And an adult, I’m still learning.
