Note: 
On a beautiful sunny day Rina decides to go to the Jewish bookstore with her friend Bina but has to cancel her plans because of rain. The little girl makes several alternate plans but all are thwarted by circumstances beyond her control. After each disappointment Rina says, “Gam zu l’tova, I trust this is good, Hashem makes things happen the way that they should.” Rina ‘s story has a happy ending. Mrs. Stein who was walking in the rain and needed a place to rest knocks on Rina’s door. Rina invites her in and serves her lunch. Mrs. Stein is so grateful that she gives Rina a gift that happens to be the book Rina was planning on purchasing in the Jewish bookstore. These events prove to Rina that Hashem makes things happen the way that they should. Rina’s Rainy Day: A Gem Zu L’tova Story is written in rhyme. The vibrant, colorful illustrations compliment the text although they are somewhat stilted and childish.
