RAINWALK is the story of two children, Katie and older-sister-Jenny,  who are introduced to a summer rainwalk by their mother.  Barefoot and carrying umbrellas, the three rainwalkers march and skip and splatter their way through the neighborhood from one discovery to another.  They find treasure in the gutters gushing with rainwater and beauty in the magnolia blossoms turned into water basins for the birds.  Their final treasure is a rainbow that greets them upon their arrival back home.  The story ends with Katie’s request for another rainwalk tomorrow and the rain’s response.
