My grown children will identify with Leroy and Aimee for there was nothing they enjoyed more when the long Mozambican dry season ended than to play in the rain. But in this story the rain doesn't stop and the children must be rescued by helicopter. Delightful pastel illustrations with expressive faces. Based on actual events, this could be frightening or confusing to small children. I wish the author had chosen more Mozambican sounding names.
