Erna Osland and Per Ragnar Møkleby: WHEN IT RAINS IN AFRICA: A BOOK ABOUT WEATHER AND CLIMATE CHANGE

'When it Rains in Africa' coverNår det regner i Afrika
Ei bok om vêr og klimaendringar
Published by Samlaget, 2015

A fact book for children all about meteorology. What creates the weather? Where does the wind come from? Why does hail come down at the speed of a racing car and why does it even rain in the first place?

This is a book about weather, but also a book about Styrk, who lives in Norway but thinks a lot about Africa. When will the rain fall on his grandmother’s parched fields, he wonders. Because it must be due soon, surely, unless someone has stolen it? This is the story of Styrk, but also a fact book about meteorology. At the end of the book you can read about how the weather is in the process of changing here on Earth. Plus, you’ll find out where the rain in Africa went!

Illustrated by Per Ragnar Møkleby.
