Meet Bartholomew, a curious, kind and sweet third grader. One day, Bartholomew wakes up and is convinced he sees a black cloud forming in the clear blue sky. "I think it might rain," he proclaims. But what happens when his family, friends, and classmates don't believe him? Will he be able to stand up to the bullies who call him names? Will he hold firm in his beliefs?

Read an Excerpt

IMAGINE the look of surprise on his mom’s face, EYES WIDE OPEN, her MOUTH and JAW nearly touching the floor. “Where do you think you’re going, young man, dressed like that?” she asked.

“To school of course,” Bart replied, quickly adding, “I think it might rain.”

“Mommy, can I wear my rain suit too?” his little sister Olivia asked.

“Not today. The sun is shining, and the weatherman said there is no rain in sight,” replied Mommy firmly.

“He’s wrong!” shouted Bartholomew in a stern and confident voice. “I think it might rain.”

“If you want to be the only silly one on the bus dressed in rain gear, go right ahead,” Mom replied, her eyes raised and a loving smile gracing her face.

Grabbing his lunch with one hand and little Olivia’s hand with the other, Bart strolled confidently down to the end of the driveway to wait for the bus.
