There are counting books and counting books, so why am I highly recommending this one, you may wonder.
Let me in turn enumerate ten reasons for why I think that this book scores high on a scale of 1 - 10.
ONE. it is ludicrously funny.
TWO. it is very well illustrated.
THREE. It conveys a subtle, yet, important message of harmonious living.
FOUR. It introduces children to many Indian animals.
FIVE. It is in simple yet effective verse.
SIX. It has a clean and uncluttered layout.
SEVEN. It exposes children to one of our traditional art forms - Gond.
EIGHT. Great adjectives - goofy, dreamy, hefty, to name a few
NINE. Very few writers can pull off nonsense verse. And Anushka Ravishankar does this brilliantly.
TEN. I simply love it.
