Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain

An oldie but still a goodie.

We checked this out for the Kid from the public library.  Wes and I have fond memories of this book courtesy of a childhood spent with the much beloved Reading Rainbow.*

Wes came across this book on the shelf by accident.  It really is not easy to go into libraries or bookstores and find books that feature Africans or African Americans unless you just know precisely what you are looking for.  Needless to say, we were both very excited about it.

The Kid was kind of meh.

I KNOW right!?

Anyway, he finally consented to the reading of the book and just to make sure it made the right impression, I sprinkled on a little of the delicious crack that is James Earl Jone's hypnotic voice the next day.

*If you refuse to watch Power Rangers like I do, whole episodes of this show are on YouTube.
