    Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain by Verna Aardema

    Ki-Pat watches over his herd on the African Plain, but he has to come up with a plan to make it rain when they are suffering through a time of drought. This folktale is great for building fluency because it uses rhyme and repetition to tell the story. It is a great story to use for teaching sequencing/order of events or cause and effect. My 3rd graders enjoyed it, and were able to do things with it like performing it like a rap, drawing comic strips that showed the sequence of events, etc.

    Hypnotically lovely, the perfect bedtime story for young children

    Ths story of Kipat is told as a repetitive poem, the images of the vast savananah and the magical world of a shepherd boy illustrated with spare, vibrant lines and colors and a pulsing rhythm. This was the favorite bedtime story of both my sons for years, although it occasionally puts the reader to sleep before the story's end! Lovely, enchanting and the perfect way to end the day with a young child.

    This Book Is Grrreat!

    We really enjoy this book alot. We read it so much that we can remember it without looking at the book. The book is about a BIG black cloud all heavy with rain and all the animals are hungry and dry. Plus they needed the rain from the cloud. So animals can eat and drink.
