When a terrible drought hits the beautiful Kapiti Plain and the animals leave, young herd boy Ki-pat must find a way to end the drought and save the wildlife on the plain. Ki- pat decided to make an arrow out of a feather that fell from an eagle and a bow out of a stick and a couple of other things.

Its been more than a decade since I’ve read that book aloud to one of my children but I can still recite it word for word. Verna Aardema has brought the original story closer to the English nursery rhyme by putting in a cumulative refrain and giving the tale the rhythm of “The House That Jack Built. Now using this bow and arrow he shot to the clouds, and like a balloon, the clouds burst into the water and rained till the grass became green.Usually, there are just a few sentences in a sensory story (10 or less) and each sentence is paired with a sensory stimulus.

I read it to her that night, three times, and she kept requesting it every single night for about four months, she was three, and I was tired. In a quaint village nestled at the edge of a magical forest, lived a curious and imaginative little girl named Nini.Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain takes the reader, young or old, on a rhyming and rhythmic journey to Kenya. The beautiful words pop off the page and out of the reader’s mouth so crisply, it’s as if I am also standing in the field, in Africa. In this ten-session Writing Root, which we suggest will take 3 weeks to cover, the children begin by locating Kenya on a map and learning a traditional Kenyan song.
