The Rhythm of the Rain

Author: Grahame Baker-Smith
Illustrator: Grahame Baker-Smith
Publisher: Templar

The ubiquity of water throughout the world, its necessity to humans and animals and how the water cycle works are all explored in an imaginative combination of words and pictures. It begins and ends with Issac, playing in a pool by a mountainside as raindrops start to fall, and wondering where the water goes from a jar he empties. The reader follows the river that flows past Issac’s home as it winds through the countryside and the city to the sea. Mist from the ocean rises up into a cloud bringing rain to thirsty people in a land far from Issac’s pool.
