We have been sent a copy of Rain by Manya Stojic, which is an enchanting and beautifully illustrated story set in the African Savannah.
Rain by Manya Stojic is a lovely bright colourful book. The story is set in the African Savannah.
“The porcupine smells rain in the air. The zebras see lightning. The baboons hear rumbling thunder. The rhino feels the first drops and the lion tastes the cool water...”
The book has you joining all the savannah animals, using your senses to help them track a coming storm.
However, the hot sun dries out the land again once the rain has stopped, and the animals have to wait for the next big rain.
“The sun shone over the plain. It was hot. Everything was drying out“
Rain by Manya Stojic has very fun, simple text which makes it an easy book to read, with lovely big text and bright colourful illustrations.
I like that the book has an embossed cover in the shape of raindrops – shiny ones – it makes the book stand out on the shelf.
I think this book is ideal for young readers – especially ones who are starting to get into expression, as well as teaching children about senses and the environment.
