About this deal

James Earl Jones reads "Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain", an African story written in the style of "The House .

Organization: This book could be used as a mentor text for creating a class book with a cumulative refrain. It also has a good message, that if you try hard enough you can change something bad into something good.

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. You’ll also be able to utilize my library for looking up titles to see whether the book you’re thinking about reading next has any objectionable content or not.

such as the setting, the way the events are linked one to another, the overall tone and feel, the source of the narrative. A very nicely illustrated retelling of a traditional Kenyan folktale, altered to fit the British style of cumulative nursery rhymes, reminiscent of "The House that Jack Built. As the big, black cloud, all heavy with rain, that shadowed the ground on Kapiti Plain’ lingers in the sky ahead, who will save the day and end this draught over Kapiti Plain?

In the story, Kondi goes on a journey to find the "Rain-Stone," a mystical object that is believed to have the power to bring rain. This teaching sequence focuses primarily on the key skills of reading aloud with expression and fluency, inferring meaning from what is stated and implied, and being able to retrieve key information from the text whilst also drawing in other skills relevant to the reading aspect of the national curriculum. A big favorite of theirs and mine was Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain by Verna Aardema and illustrated by Beatriz Vidal.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. illustrated by Leo and Diane Dillon, was an ALA Notable Children’s Book and a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, 1977. It seemed logical that after learning about Vikings, Africa could be of interest and should be known about.

But the story begins with a 10 line introduction and the middle 6 lines of the introduction have unstressed endings.

It is a short and illustrative example of what is most important to herders, rain so that there is natural feed for their cattle.

I really like how the poem builds and unfortunately it didn't work too well when I read it with a nursery group but I'm sure KS1 or 2 groups would appreciate it much more. Beatriz Vidal's beautiful illustrations provide a charming accompaniment to the story, which would make an ideal story-hour selection. She told me that she liked my books but my copy of "Canterbury Tales" was weird and she had trouble reading the words.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. Adapted to the rhythm of the fairy tale, “The House That Jack Built,” this story is an expression of a folk tale that was discovered by an anthropologist in the early years of the twentieth century. The sensory stimuli don't just support the words in telling the story, if well chosen, they tell the story in their own right. It is a bit long so I had to break it into sections to keep children’s attention but it was a fun read.
