Rayne Queen Water Supplier of the World is a book about a spirited little girl, who dreams of being a queen. She goes on a journey to convince Dale the Dolphin, Bella the Butterfly, and others, that she is their queen. Rayne believes that she is rain, and supplies the world with water, but the animals do not believe her. Elizabeth Rooks has created an enjoyable children’s book that subtly teaches the importance of rain. This book reminds me of Where the Wild Things Are, in the fact that Rayne and Max share similar characteristics, and are out to rule the world! Young girls will enjoy Rayne’s adventures, as well as the wonderful illustrations. However, there are several big vocabulary words that younger children might have trouble reading. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to parents with young girls, as a book to read along with their daughters.
