The wonder of rain

If you haven't seen 'Kayden + Rain', then take a look at: http://vimeo.com/84802749

Fifteen-month-old Kayden lives in California and in this two-minute video she is seen heading outdoors, dressed still in her pyjamas, to delight in her first experience of a torrential downpour.

She laughs, squeals, holds up her hands to feel the raindrops trickle down on her. Then she heads indoors only to come back for more. 

There is enough here to fill a textbook: the joy of discovery, sensory learning, the need for awe and wonder in children's lives, early language, experiential play, the adult role...

In the midst of such misery for so many UK families at the moment, Kayden is providing viewers with bit of light relief and reminding all adults about life's simple pleasures.
