Monsoon Afternoon, by Kashmira Sheth, is a quiet little book
that celebrates an act of nature most people find utterly annoyingrain.



            The book
opens with a young boy living in Indian peeks out his window and notices black
clouds rolling in.  Even after drops of
rain begin to fall and the ants, animals and birds scatter for cover, the boy
begs everyone in his household to go outside and play with him.



            His
grandfatheror his Dadaji, in their language, happily plays with him.  As they play sail boat and other games, his
Dadaji tells him why monsoon is important, and what it was like when he was a
boy and the monsoon came.



            Again, this
is a quiet book; a book that encourages bonding between grandfather and
grandson; a book about the cycle of life.



            This
perfect lap book boasts beautiful illustrations by gifted artistYoshiko Jaeggi,
and is sure to be a wonderful way to bond with your child while teaching about
the love of family and other cultures.
