What an interesting idea Pratish Mistry had to write this very nice tale, Kineosho Learns to Walk. I have enjoyed learning in a most delightful way. Kineosho Learns to Walk has a narrative feel to it, but is full of exciting adventures. It also intertwines a lot of general education.
I can’t believe that Pratish Mistry talks about birth, death, growing up, and the love of learning with a beautiful voice and in such a subtle manner that you don’t even know you've just learned something about real life. The characters are animals and the story starts with a lion and lioness that are having a cub while being observed by a group of scientists. The interesting thing is that I thought they would be the main characters, but I was wrong.
I found myself enjoying this tale so much that I know it will be enjoyed by kids. You will learn basic things like birth, your senses, sleep patterns, acceptance of anyone, and also things such as how to become better at finding your place in life. This is an exceptionally well written book, with a great voice that will enthrall any reader and listener. I believe little kids will love to hear about the adventures of Kineosho and his adopted sister Viddi, and how they discover their place in the circle of life.
Young adults will love to read this book because of the interesting way it is presented. I would have to say that adults will love it too for the strength of the story. If you love the book Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh, or Star Wars, you will find a new treasure in this story. I hope they make it into a movie too. Great job.
