“Maxwell, the Raindrop Who Wouldn’t Fall” a book that encourages understanding and self-acceptance.
Maxwell does not want to simply fall like the other raindrops. He feels that, as a raindrop, he has little importance. He wants to be a bird, a rainbow or a flower. Anything but a raindrop.
Throughout the story, the grandfatherly cloud tries to gently assure Maxwell that rain is a part of everything that he wants to be, so it is important for him to simply be himself.
At the end of the story, all of the other raindrops have fallen and Maxwell sees a thirsty flower that was missed by the other raindrops. The flower will dry up without rain.
Maxwell then realizes his purpose. He is suddenly proud to be a raindrop. The story ends with him happily falling to save the flower.
Maxwell the Raindrop: Am I Still Me?” a story that celebrates growth and change.
Yesterday Maxwell fell to save a thirsty flower. Now he experiences the water cycle as he turns into vapor, then a snowflake and eventually back into water.
At each change he asks himself “how can I change and still be me?”
At the end of the story, he becomes friends with a dandelion who goes through changes of her own and asks the same question.
