After it Rains
Once the rain stops, what is there to do but go outside and explore your newly wet and sparkly backyard? In this counting board book, young readers will discover all the things the rain brings out: one puddle, four butterflies, nine wiggly worms. Joanne Schwartz’s beautifully subtle text is complemented by Angela Doak’s collage-style artwork, made with bits of recycled paper and foil wrappers, giving the illustrations interesting layers of colour and texture.
Angela Doak is a collage artist and photographer. All of her work is done first as collage, made up of fabric, candy and gum wrappers, misprints, junk mail, and just about anything else that fits the image she’s making at the time. She lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with her husband and two children.
