Anokhi Dosti is a Mom's Choice Awards(R) Gold Recipient
Does a smile or a laugh have trans-formative power? It does in a special place called Tadoba. Anokhi Dosti is a remarkable tale of the trans-formative power of companionship, particularly for someone who is lonely and never really had the gift of laughter. A flock of migrating geese stumble upon Tadoba, the land of the fierce tiger Babbar who does not tolerate anyone in his area. Will Babbar show any mercy? Can he change? Will the geese make it to safety?
This is a story about change -- a transformation that comes with the magic of friendship.
Guaranteed to get a giggle out of kids, Anokhi Dosti also provides plenty of opportunities for readers to connect with the characters in richly detailed, mesmerizing illustrations. The focus is on friendship and its healing effect while the story is spoken from the viewpoint of a father and son in a multi-generation relationship. This Award Winning picture book is perfect for read-aloud fun.
