This is not a new text; originally written in 1981, it has been present in the larger canon of children’s literature for nearly 40 years (also winning multiple awards). Discussion points are suggested throughout and where possible answers have been provided to support the teaching. The rhymed words are not forced by using archaic grammar They are all easy to read and well within a child’s working vocabulary.

A book lover myself, I strongly believe in reading to kids on a daily basis, to help them turn into mini bookworms. By the way, she couldn't make out the words in "Canterbury Tales" The reason was because it was written and printed in Old English. I enjoyed Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain immensely, and had such fun with the rhyming narrative, that I began to read it aloud to myself.

Retold by Aardema, this Nandi tale celebrates sound and noise as well as the animal life and landscape of the East African plains. Summary: Published six years after her award winning "Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears", this book is a beautifully illustrated cumulative rhyming tale about a drought in the Kapati plain of Kenya discovered by an anthropologist in the early 20th century who had noticed its a rhythmic pattern in the original telling reminiscent of "The House that Jack Built.

This book has rhythm and a cumulative refrain like “The House That Jack Built” does, which makes it a good read aloud. It could also be integrated with social studies or science when learning about different ecosystems or weather. When LeVar's plans of attending a picnic and softball game are derailed by a downpour, he decides to stay home to read a few books instead.

Not so much a weakness as a common element in traditional literature, but in the story the drought ended because an Eagle feather dropped from the sky.The illustrations are fabulous, very evocative of place and emotion; the cows with their tongues lulling out from thirst always creeped me out as a kid, but in a delicious sort of way since I knew the happy ending to come. With rhyming lines that repeat many times, this would be a great story to share with a class who could join in with the telling of the story. It is about Ki-pat, a herdsman who tries to make it rain during a drought so the cattle will have grass to graze on. It’s one thing to craft a really great story that hits the imagination of the moment and becomes a blockbuster, but it’s an entirely different sort of success to have a book stand the test of time.
