Kira always feels gloomy when it rains. She can’t read outside, can’t play in the park, and has to wear all her thickest clothes.
But one day her friends Ana and Ilo ask her to join them on an adventure outside during another downpour. Kira discovers the joy of all the things that happen outside when it rains – from the new friends she makes, to the umbrellas on the streets, to the thrill of lightning, and finally, the warmth found at the end of each rainfall.
With her delightful artwork and enchanting words, Rassi Narika spins a story of hope and discovery that will brighten even the rainiest of days.

An Interview with Rassi Narika
‘Because a lot of picture books are meant for children, I also find that they bring the best qualities of human beings. As an adult, I find picture books are my refuge when I need to be reminded that at the core of life, we have good qualities. The innocence, curiosity, and childlike perspective I get from reading picture books helps me to find new stories in life.’ – Rassi Narika, interviewed for The Emma Valley Press blog.
