I know.. Land and help celebrate the indian Festival of Kojagiri. This is a yearly festival in India where people "stay up late. They laugh, and have a jolly time."
My son giggled at times as I read the book to him. He could just see the donkey falling over himself. He could well imagine Babbar trying to make funny donkey noises. He giggled. I smiled.
He didn't quite understand the trusting nature of the geese the next year. He's too logical you know. he KNOWS that geese wouldn't stay in the forest all year so logically how would they know if Babbar could be trusted? But he was happy about how a friendship changed the forest for good. :)
My ONLY concern is the paper quality used in the book. I had a hard time turning the pages. Even after I flipped through the book a bit that pages still wanted to stick together. Excellent book to use as the start of a series on friendship or on India as real places and festivals are part of the book.
