As one dry day follows another in the Australian outback everyone and everything is waiting for the rain which seems as though it will never come Rosie’s kids the panting dogs the fat green frogs and Old Stephen all do what they can to keep cool. Big rain is predicted by the “dark clouds spreading south” and by Old Stephen Yet day after day the rains don’t fall Using artwork in the aboriginal style of the Papunya Tula cooperative dot paintings Bronwyn Bancroft and writer Katrina Germein recreate a dry spell in the Australian outback The sacred “Rainbow Serpent” a symbol of creation associated with water and life pulls you through each page until the rain finally comes to refresh the earth and be a cause for celebrationThis book is a lovely companion piece for Verna Aardema’s “Bringing the Rains to Kapiti Plain” Children can think about the importance of rain to life especially to animals and people who depend on nature for fresh water and survival Each book tells a similar story but we see differences in the cultural representation Big Rain Coming never identifies where the story takes place though the artwork makes it clear or should we not read so much into it Wouldn’t a dry spell when water is needed look the same in any country Who are the people that await the rain on dry swirling plains under a hot dotted sun I see so many fun uses for this book and would love to share the style of the artwork with budding artists
