Big Rain (Paperback)
Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Big Rain was written when the author tried to explain to her three-year-old how the devastating floods in Kerala had affected family and friends and so many others back home in India
Rain can be fun. But sometimes, “lots and lots and lots of rain” is frightening — when water comes into homes and washes everything away.
Floods and other natural calamities do happen, children do get caught in them, and other children see it all on television. How do they make sense of it?
The book talks to children through rhythmic, repetitive text and evocative visuals, ending with the important reminder that if you look after nature, nature will look after you. It enables conversations that can heal and empower.
