Rain can be fun. But sometimes, ‘lots and lots and lots of rain’ is frightening — when water comes into homes and washes everything away.

Floods and other natural calamities do happen, children do get caught in them, and other children see it all on television. How do they make sense of it? Big Rain was written when the author tried to explain to her three-year-old how the devastating floods in Kerala had affected family and friends and so many, many others. The book talks to children through very simple text and evocative visuals, ending with the important reminder that if you look after nature, nature will look after you. It enables conversations that can heal and empower.

About the Contributors

The author once had a picture book collection of her own. Now she shares it with her equally enthusiastic son. Together they discover new worlds that inform and inspire them, and learn about things great and small. Her last book with Tulika was Minu and her Hair.

The illustrator paints, teaches and illustrates for children. He lives in Adoor, a small town in Kerala. This is his third book with Tulika, after Upside Down and Little Frog.
