This review has been long overdue. But I felt it is appropriate time to talk about this book – it is the rainy season now, and kids love the rains!
Paper boats are out floating in the water and crazy dancing in the rains ensues. But what exactly does it mean for the animals in this jungle?
The title of this Hindi book from Pratham publications itself suggests it is a sound and the various interpretations by the residents of the jungle. So what does this sound stand for? This is exactly what the jungle animals do. They set out to find out the source of the sound they hear on a rainy day.
The author and illustrator have both done a great job in maintaining suspense, enough to hold a child’s interest in finding out more about the sound mentioned.
This Level 2 book by Pratham is a picture-rich story book appropriate for kids aged 3+.
