Lila and the Secret of Rain by David Conway
Lila and the Secret of RainThe beautiful story of how Lila saves her village by telling the sky the saddest thing she knows. For months the sun has burned down on Lila's Kenyan village. It is too hot to gather firewood, too hot to weed the garden, even too hot to milk the cow. Without rain the well will run dry and the crops will fail. Lila is so worried that when her grandfather whispers to her the secret of rain, she decides to go and talk to the sky herself.
