Little Frog, who has lived all his life as a tadpole in the water so far, leaps on to land for the first time when he grows into a frog. He is surprised to find the land dry and he asks his mother when it will rain. When the sky is dark with clouds, his mother replies. Every day of the week, Little Frog looks up at the sky and when he sees something dark there, he asks those he sees such as the crane, the fish, the stork and so on if these are clouds. No, comes the reply each time, it's something else: it's a swarm of insects one time, and another time it's kites flying in the sky. Until finally, it is dark clouds and the rain comes down and all the frogs in the pond begin to croak for joy. This bilingual book is also a story about days of the week, things you can see in the sky, and other creatures.

Rainy goodness

Little frog jumps out of the pond for the very first time - but the land is dry. When will it rain? he asks his mother. When the sky becomes dark with clouds, she responds. So, day after day, Little Frog gazes at the sky in the hope of seeing black clouds roll in. A great book for teaching the days of the week... the adult reading out to the child could also make it a fun guessing game, such as, What could this black thing in the sky be? Another interesting feature is the use of various animals associated with water - the crane, duck, crab, peacock, kingfisher and fish, which in itself become another learning tool. Clear, lucid illustrations with a lot of white space makes it very inviting for a young child to delve into the book. Young India Books
