Verna Aardema has brought the original story closer to the English nursery rhyme by putting in a cumulative refrain and giving the tale the rhythm of “The House That Jack Built. Its been more than a decade since I’ve read that book aloud to one of my children but I can still recite it word for word. Not inherently gripping, but the cumulative structure and rhythm of the text makes the simple chain of events far more compelling than they would be otherwise. I really like how the poem builds and unfortunately it didn't work too well when I read it with a nursery group but I'm sure KS1 or 2 groups would appreciate it much more.

Do young readers ever ask if a causal relationship between the feather dropping and the drought ending has been satisfactorily established? By the way, she couldn't make out the words in "Canterbury Tales" The reason was because it was written and printed in Old English. Verna Aardema has brought the original story closer to the English nursery rhyme by putting in a cumulative refrain and giving the tale the rhythm of "The House That Jack Built.The illustrations are evocative of African artwork, and unlike many children's books that tell folktales, this one omits the near-obligatory animism and spiritism that permeates tribal cultures. Eventually, Kondi finds the Rain-Stone and brings it back to his village, where it successfully brings much-needed rain to the Kapiti Plain.

In this traditional tale, discovered in Kenya, a young herd boy Ki-pat must find a way to end the dreadful drought that has come to the beautiful Kapiti Plain and save the animals that live there.

But the story begins with a 10 line introduction and the middle 6 lines of the introduction have unstressed endings. Bringing reading for pleasure to the forefront of children's educational experience is something I am really passionate about! The second fairly obvious observation is that the format of the story, the cumulative or House-that-Jack-Built format, works well for this tale in which each thing is directly related to the next. So the verses were less structured than, say a sonnet, but still they were quite consistent in their rhythms. Luke I am your father, and Simba you are the one true king, and THIS IS CNN celebrating a decade of growth.Beatriz Vidal's gorgeous illustrations gives a sense of ancient simplicity that compliments the story in every way. The birds and animals started to migrate and a herdsman named Ki-pat wanted to end the drought in Kapiti plain so that his cattle could graze on grass.
