How they wished they could be like the grown-ups!

 

              

In a Sentence: Be happy with what you have, and enjoy being what you are.

 

What is it About: Siblings Simi and Toto aren’t too pleased with this being an adult’s world. No body to stop the grown-ups from doing what they want. Not fair, right? So the two decide to act suitably grown-up, and walk into a jungle. Animals in the jungle have exchanged their tails. What do you think happens?!

 

What makes it snuggly: All the animals strutting around with mismatched tails!

 

What Stands Out: The paper-craft artwork of the book by Saumya Agrawal. The animals look adorable, and the craftwork seems do-able. Don’t be surprised if your child gets down to cooking up his own animal-tail concoction with every available scrap of paper.

 

Will be best enjoyed by: 4-6 years. And just about anyone who loves animals.

 

From snuggly to snugglier: The book comes with two activities at the end, but once the pages have been scribbled on, spend some time playing the matching game on http://www.lpzoo.org/interactives/tails.html, or browse through http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-the-purpose-of-a-tail-in-animals.htm for pot loads of information on tails.
