Let's Dance in the Rain Josh is a children's book that everyone can learn from.  When Josh is asked to come out and dance in the rain Josh replies, "Oh no I can't do that I will need so many things". 

How many times have you not done something you wanted to do because you felt you needed to have so many things in place before you can even begin?  Let's Dance in the Rain Josh teaches us that  we are fine just the way we are and it's fun to dance in the rain.

The main character Josh is inspired by my own son Joshua, who at the age of 8 years-old was hit and severly injured by a car. Joshua recieved massive traumatic brain injury and now has so many physical and cognitive challenges you would think that he has lost everything.  However when asked, Joshua will tell you that he is a lucky boy and that he has a great life.

Because of Joshua's enthusiasm, during the roughest times in my life he has taught me that everything doesn't have to be just so before I can have fun.   Through Joshua's message, he has helped me to re-create and re-build my life and most importantly to Dance in the Rain.

Through reading Let's Dance in the Rain Josh you and your kids will have fun as you learn through Josh that sometimes we come up with pretty goofy reasons as to why we can't begin to do the things we want or love to do.   Watch Josh as he becomes more animated and creative in order to explain why he can't go out in the rain and dance.

The money raised through kickstarter.com will be used for: professional illustration,  publication and distribution of : Let's Dance in the Rain Josh.
