The New Rain Boots

A little girl gets new rain boots and badly wants to wear them to school, but she's only allowed to wear them when it's raining. Every day she begs her mom, who becomes increasingly exasperated, until finally the rain comes and she can wear her new boots.

This short story was illustrated for Big Books, which is part of a learning programme run by Class Act. The stories are printed in large A3 anthologies and read to students from Grades 1-3.


I work with Class Act doing illustration for educational short stories, as well as creating other illustrated educational content. The learning programmes are run by Class Act in collaboration with the National Education Collaboration Trust and the Department of Basic Education in South Africa.


These stories are educational and therefore not available for purchase.
