The author bought the story so well and he portrayed so many common characters like fruit seller, postman, milkman, tailor, flower seller. A book filled with simple text and a story that teaches young kids about kindness, empathy and care for animals. Further, we can discuss rain or how we will catch a cold or why Gajapati didn’t have a shelter… The possibilities are endless to start a conversation with them.

We are in this pandemic and it’s really important to read more empathetic stories to young kids, to look after the street animals and also be empathetic towards them. Nathan loves this story and every elephant is named Gajapati. Also, there are many funny lines in the story and it’s definitely a book recommended for reading aloud.
