BIRDS OF DIFFERENT FEATHERS
In the words of Bachi Karkaria, renowned journalist of Times of India, ‘the book is an aviary full of stories each of which is suffixed with interesting factoids about that species. Birds of Different Feathers should roost on every child’s shelf. It’s sure to lay a big egg of awareness and interest.’
MAMMALS MIGHTY AND WEAK
Through the stories in this book the young reader is made aware of the peculiar behaviour of each species of mammal, from the tiny Pika living on high altitudes to the largest mammal on the planet, the Blue Whale. The different tactics used by mammals to hunt, the maternal care for their young, how skilfully they adapt to their habitats – this book reveals it all.
OUR GREEN SAVIOURS
Did you know that some trees can predict weather, or that some trees can strangle others? Or that trees can walk and even talk? Would you believe that some trees can live for thousands of years? This book, through its interesting stories, skits and poems, tells you all this and even more. It is a treasure trove of knowledge put in the most entertaining manner.
ODYSSEY IN THE OCEANS
There is no end to describing the oceans’ unique life; the strangest of mysteries it holds in its stride; the bewildering dramas that within it unfold. The reader will be amazed and thrilled to learn what goes on within our vast watery world.
Insects are considered by many as creepy crawly creatures. But did you know that insects can teach us many things and inspire us with their mind-blowing skills and awesome beauty? There are, among insects, architects, masons, nurses, scouts, tricksters, actors, farmers and gardeners. Find it hard to believe? Just read this book and you will be convinced.
HOW BLUE IS OUR PLANET
This book familiarises the young reader with the only planet they will ever live on. According to Bittu Sahgal, Editor, Sanctuary magazine, this book ‘is really a child’s primer, a sort of Owner’s Manual to familiarise children with the only planet they will ever be able to live on. Instead of delivering lectures, Katie manages to communicate issues surrounding pollution, dams, deforestation and even over-fishing to children.’
