Read on this full book review.
Publisher: Eklavya Pitara
Illustrations: Deepa Balsavar
Age Group: 3 years +
About The Book:
The book is a pictorial representation of our ‘Water-Cycle‘.
The previous sentences gets repeated with each step forward, which makes the reading rhyming and fun.
The last page also deals with what happens to the water after Sonu bathes with it. It completes the circle.
Illustrations steal the show here. At the end of the book, there is a chart given compiling all the illustrations of this book. This ‘all pics-no text’ chart speaks for itself and explains the whole water cycle.
We vacationed in Sikkim this summer. I had ordered a set of 22 books from Eklavya Pitara and this book was one of them. I had no clue what was inside the book except for the concept. Imagine our surprise when we received this book just after returning from Sikkim! It was like re-visiting our memories of the mountains we had just visited. How? (see pics) the snow clad mountains (Zero Point), the Yaks, the flower valley (Yumthang valley), Teesta river, the monks and the monastery, the pine trees, the flags of monks on the mountains, the tea leaves plucker with her basket…. woohoo! Couldn’t have asked for more!
