9781848530157: The Day the Rains Fell

A wonderful, evocative tale about how waterholes came to exist on the African savannah At the beginning of time a goddess descends to Earth and finds that parts of the land are dry, the plants are wilting, and the animals are thirsty, for even when it rains on the parched surface, the water just runs off. The goddess is inspired to make enormous pots of clay which she pushes into the earth to collect the rainwater so the animals can drink. While she works, her daughter collects bits of leftover clay and makes a necklace. Once the pots are in place, the animals show their gratitude by adding colors to the dull beads of the necklace—the flamingo gives its bright pink, the zebra its stripes, and the ant the deep red of the earth inside its anthill. Featuring beautiful watercolor illustrations and a page of information about traditional African pots and beads, this book also includes activities for children to do on their own.

About the Author:

Anne Faundez is the author of A Cloak for Swallow, How to Write Reports, Little Red Riding Hood, and Tiddalik the Frog. Karin Littlewood has illustrated more than 300 children's books, including Catherine's Gift, Home Now, and The Most Important Gift of All, and has twice been nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

From Booklist:

Set in the African savannah, this original creation story tells of Lindiwe and her young daughter, Thandi, who come down from the sky to make sure all is well with the Earth and its creatures. When they find drought, Lindiwe brings rain (“Thunder roared . . . the trees lifted their leaves”), and the animals jump with joy. With the newly dampened earth, Lindiwe crafts clay pots to store rainwater, and Thandi makes beads, to which animals add their special colors. The double-page pencil-and-watercolor art shows the wild creatures first struggling in the dry landscape with its bare trees and dusty soil, then leaping happily when the lightning strikes. As the water comes, so does the activity in each scene. Drawn by all the images of lions, rhinos, elephants, giraffes, ostrichs, bucks, and more, young kids will also enjoy the magical story of color and crafts. Preschool-Grade 2. --Hazel Rochman
