Home in the Rain

Francie's going to have a new baby sister very soon. But what will her name be? Francie has so many ideas! On a long drive home with Mum, in the pouring rain, maybe they'll find one that's just right... 

Home in the Rain is a delightful story from the wonderful Bob Graham, and is a celebration of the simple yet special moments that often pass us by unnoticed. As Francie and her mother travel home in the rain one evening, down the highway, through the countryside, into a rest stop and on to the petrol station before finally arriving home, each scene is exquisitely observed, with gentle illustrations adding extra dimension to this evocative tale.

Tender and timeless, this story cherishes those moments of family relationships that enrich our lives. Told sweetly by actor Zahra Newman, this remarkable story will stay with viewers for a long time.
