In a world full of stereotyping, I am always on the look out for books that teach children acceptance. This book, ‘The Lion Who Wanted to Love’ by Giles Andreae does exactly that.
This book is a special treat for the youngest readers to be introduced to the rich world of Ruskin Bond. A delightful read as the master storyteller, the child in this book takes your little one on the rides on land, water and air. The illustrations by Samrat Halder add a beautiful layer allowing the child to visualise the characters, their dressing style and the modes of travel vividly and with ease.
The text in the book manages to strike the perfect balance between being informative, yet staying humorous and appealing to the child. Of course, the most attractive part of the book is the fact that it can be personalised with your child’s name, which means that while reading the child gets to hear his/her name woven into the story! It doesn’t get cooler than that!
The book is about a little girl who says no to everything that her parents ask her to do. So much so, that her mum and dad ask her if she can just try to say yes once! It all changed when Gideon, the Gorilla arrived at her door!
What a fun book this is. Important lessons of balancing fun and work taught so effortlessly with a twist and depicting our mythological characters of Kama and Yama.
