Floods and other natural calamities do happen, children do get caught in them, and other children see it all on television. How do they make sense of it? Big Rain was written when the author tried to explain to her three-year-old how devastating floods in certain parts of the world affected family and friends and so many, many others. The book talks to children through very simple text and evocative visuals, ending with the important reminder that if you look after nature, nature will look after you. It enables conversations that can heal and empower.
