Sophie gets bored quickly and won’t even eat her food without looking at her tablet. She’s thrilled to hear of her family’s upcoming trip to a magical place called India, a land she’s only heard of in stories. Once there, she quickly realizes that the underprivileged children living in the mud colony possess a joy and contentment she can’t explain. Sophie sets out on a journey of discovery, but what she finds may change her world forever. This tale about the true meaning of happiness and the power of gratitude is based on true events.

My Review:

Marked by stunning artwork and powerful messages, Children Who Dance in the Rain is an inspiring and enlightening book about kindness, generosity and positivity. Sophie learns about the word "privilege" at school, but she doesn't really understand it until she takes a transformative trip to her grandma's hometown in India. Seeing that children there lack access to safe drinking water, nutritious food, and sanitary living environment, let alone modern necessities like electricity and Internet, Sophie realizes how privileged she has been and feels guilty about being wasteful and ungrateful in the past. Meanwhile she's surprised by how happy, content, and willing to share those disadvantaged children are. How will her unique adventure impact her life back home and beyond?

The contrast between Sophie's life and that of the children she meets in India reveals the disparities in resources across different parts of the world, while Sophie's post-trip change in behavior and attitude inspires young readers to cherish all that they are endowed with and to offer help to children who are less fortunate than themselves. Besides, the joy and positivity displayed by the Indian kids are beautifully captured in the colorful and cheerful illustrations, motivating the reader to ponder upon what makes one's life meaningful and fulfilling.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who cares about child welfare in a global perspective and who aspires to make a difference. It's a book that gives back and changes lives.
