The second book launched was Thank you Rain! written by Sally Morgan and illustrated by Johnny Warrkatja Malibirr. Thank you Rain! is a celebration of the plants and animals that welcome rain: raindrops in the treetops; birds singing in the rain; raindrops wetting the dry earth and filling creek beds; birds, frogs and kangaroos all enjoying the rain, and finishes with Johnny dancing with happiness!
