Near a majestic mountain in a vast jungle with many mango trees, it has not rained for weeks and weeks. The village well and pond are dry. Monkey and his friends look everywhere for water, but they have no luck. And then Monkey remembers a story his mama used to tell him, a story about how peacocks can make it rain by dancing. So he sets out to see if the story is trueâ�¦ This little-known legend, told with dramatic rhythm and illustrated with the colours and textures of India, is sure to delight and inspire.
""A Bucket of Blessings" is a delightfully illustrated book which describes for children the benefits of "giving back" to their communities and the world. It is a wonderful book to enjoy reading with children and grandchildren."--Jeanne Shaheen, US Senator
