AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Tabitha and the Raincloud is about those yucky days when things seem to go wrong from the moment you wake up. When Tabitha wakes up on the wrong side of the bed, she finds a big raincloud next to her taking up most of the space. She tells it to go away, but it won't budge. Things get worse. At breakfast, the cloud rains all over her scrambled eggs. At school, she tries to draw a giraffe, but the raincloud distracts her and her art teacher compliments her on her dinosaur Aaagh By lunchtime, Tabitha is so stormy that none of her friends want to sit next to her. Tabitha realises she needs to change her attitude. It's not the raincloud that's making her day unpleasant, but how she's choosing to react to it. So, Tabitha fetches her umbrella, raincoat and boots from her locker and starts dancing in the rain. It's not long before her friends join her and they're all having fun together This is a story of resilience, choices, optimism and perseverance. It's a gentle reminder that we all have raincloudy days but we'll get through them. And sometimes, we can bring the sunshine out a little bit faster if we remember to dance in the rain.'   (Publication summary)
