How does a child look at weather? What do they make of it? Unlike grown-ups who moan that it is hot in the summer and then complain about the cold during winter and then again complain about how wet and damp everything is in the monsoon, but it is not so for a child. A child will find something or the other to revel in even as the weather patterns change. The monsoon brings with it, bright colourful rainbows and puddles to splash in. Winter is the time to snuggle under a warm quilt, whereas, summer time is for playing in the garden.

A lovely book to teach about the weather and attitudes, too!
