Every summer, the rains wash away the schoolhouse in Thomas’s village in Chad. And every September, Thomas and the other children begin the year with an important lesson: building their own schoolhouse anew. But while the building can be easily destroyed, that is not true of the knowledge that fills the children’s heads during the school year. James Rumford offers a colorful snapshot of what it’s like to attend a RAIN SCHOOL (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $16.99). Ages 4-8. AJK
