Little Vinayak in California


Have you ever heard of a book swap? Here's how it works: you send me a book that you think I'll like and I send you a book that I think you'll like - and then we talk about both the books! Pretty simple, right? Well, here's a very interesting international book swap that happened with one of our very own Karadi Tales titles!

In a delightful book-swap, ArtNavy in Chennai sent Little Vinayak to Katy Fries in California... and Katy Fries blogs about the book here

She writes:

Artnavy sent us Little Vinayak, by Shobha Viswanath and illustrated by Shilpa Ranade. As a special bonus, the book contained a wonderful CD audiobook read by Vidya Balan and with music by 3 Brothers & A Violin. Little Vinayak is the story of a small elephant who is frustrated because he constantly trips over his trunk. His friends and other  jungle inhabitants try to help him fix his problem until a wise old elephant, Tembo, teaches him how to walk and swing his trunk so it doesn't get in his way. It's a book that is about learning to be comfortable in your own skin, a message I think we all (yes, even adults!) need to be reminded of once in awhile.

Thanks, Katy!
