Matthew Cunningham Abigail and the Restless Raindrop
Join Abigail on a rainy-day adventure to explore the marvellous movement of water around the Earth.
Abigail is a curious little girl. She likes to discover the answers to really BIG questions. One rainy morning, she thinks of a question that's SO BIG she can't concentrate on anything else until she knows the answer. "Mummy," she asks, "how did the water get in the clouds?" To discover the answer, Mummy invites Abigail on an exciting adventure with a tiny drop of lake water. Together they fly up into the sky to explore the marvellous movement of water around the Earth. By dinner time, Abigail has thought of another big question . . .
Ideal for any child who loves to ask questions, Abigail and the Restless Raindrop is an exquisitely illustrated and beautiful bedtime story doubling as an introduction to the hydrologic (water) cycle.
