1st & 2nd Grade - The Cat in the Ghat
The book name Cat in the Ghat is no accident, it’s a beautiful Dr Seuss style rhyme, where we learn more about life in the Western Ghats, and Sandesh Kadur’s aim of helping people protect and appreciate nature. Each page has beautiful water colour images, befitting of the topic.
