Home In The Rain

by Bob Graham

Ref: 15502

Francie and her very pregnant mum says bye bye to Grandma and settle into their little red motor for the journey home in the rain. And it rains. And rains. And rains. The windscreen wipers go Shoo-shoo-shoo! On the hillside above, a baby rabbit dives for cover. In the canal below, water runs off the ducks' backs. Classic Bob Graham- where small moments are connected to moments elsewhere and then build up to a final small moment which means something momentous to the players in the story. Here, under relentless pouring-down skies, Francie and her mum name the baby to be. Set in Sussex, specifically in the A Road traffic jams! 'Beautifully illustrated, touching and simple narrative' (Farrah, CLPE Learning Programme Leader, LL reviewer). 'Captivating pictures. Amazing colours. Great story' (Ann Marie, EY Safeguarding Consultant, LL reviewer). Age 4-7, Paperback 31pp
