When rain comes to the parched African savannah, the animals use all their senses to track the storm. The porcupine smells rain in the air. The zebra sees lightning. The baboons hear thunder. The rhino feels the first drops. And the lion tastes the cool water. For a time, the grasslands abound with new green leaves, juicy fruits and fresh pools of water. But soon the hot sun dries out the land, and the animals must again wait for the next big rain.

Manya Stojic's picture book debut is as satisfying and refreshing as the rain she describes. With paintings that are exuberant and saturated with colour and simple text that rolls off the tongue with pleasure and ease, here is a book parents and teachers will enjoy sharing again and again.

This is a really lovely book, exploring the different way all the animals can sense the rain is coming.  The words are beautiful, and the illustrations really bright and eye catching.
