    Rainy Day Love….., January 25, 2002
    By 

    Cornelia Augusta couldn’t believe her eyes as this unusual downpour began. Instead of water falling from the sky, it was raining hearts. She caught bunches of them in her hands and slicker, and took them home. After examining her hearts carefully, Cornelia Augusta knew just what she wanted to do with each and every one of them…. Felicia Bond has brought back her 1983 picture book, originally titled, Four Valentines In A Rainstorm, and it’s as sweet and charming today as it was almost twenty years ago. Her simple and gentle text is kept to a minimum. The actual story is told through her engaging, bright and expressive artwork, as Cornelius Augusta plans and constructs the perfect Valentine for each of four special friends. Preschoolers will enjoy watching her create each unique card, and guessing as to who will be receiving it. With a Valentine sticker page at the end to help your little ones get started on their own special Valentine cards, The Day It Rained Hearts is an endearing holiday book that shouldn’t be missed.

    Creative Reflected in a Not-Only-Valentine’s Day Tale, January 24, 2004

    My six year old took the board book version of this book out of my hands. I meant to read it to my two year old son. Instead,
    my first grader was enthralled with the illustrations, the story and the name of the loveable protagonist “Cornelia Augusta”.

    I especially enjoyed how ALL the rainbow hearts Cornelia Augusta catches are ALL different so she can craft personalized, different Valentine’s for each recipient of one of her precious gifts.

    The story is also a very opening one: there are always ways to create… no matter what the medium, what the celebration, whether the people are together or apart.

    Also, I think the 3-5 year recommendation is a bit young. My 6 year old really enjoyed it as well, the language was perfect for a first grader.

    Gives Children the idea of Sharing, February 8, 2005

    It rains an abundance of hearts one day and

    Cornielia Augusta catches them and brings them home and figures out who she wants to make things for.

    She makes a necklace by stringing them together, then cuts holes in one and as the story goes on, the children try to guess who she made the valentins for.

    It is simple and cute and give the children ideas about doing nice things for their friends.
