Product Details


“A beautiful and important book about climate change featuring those who are most affected by it. Dairman draws inspiration from the Rabari people, an Indigenous tribe of nomadic herders and shepherds that live in northwest India . . [and] Bangalore-based Sreenivasan’s extensive research is evident in her saturated, detailed illustrations. Text and illustrations work beautifully in concert.” –Kirkus, starred review

“This story was inspired by the lifestyles of the Rabari people who live in northwestern India. Their lives, as we see in this very simple yet poignant book, are intimately connected to the environment. Young readers will find the jaunty rhyme of the narrative fun to follow.” —Booklist
