FIND OUT HOW BEAUTY GOES MISSING AND FOUND LATER




 Cow, dog, goat, buffalo and cat are the ones that roam  freely in the streets of our country. Many are stray animals and few may be someone's pet. A traffic stopper, music lover  and a socialising kind goes missing unfortunately one day. 

What happens next ? , where does the owner of the pet goes for help? , Who is Jincy?, how the pet is found finally and the reunion with her owner takes place ? is all that is narrated in an out standing way in the book BEAUTY IS MISSING written  and illustrated by Priya Kuriyan. This book is meant for children in the age  group of 8-12 years. This is published by Pratham books and can be bought here : https://store.prathambooks.org/productDetails?productId=Beauty-Is-Missing-English . The book is available in all regional languages of India.

Priya Kurian is a children's book writer, illustrator, comics maker and animator. A graduate of NID, she has directed educational films for the SESAME STREET SHOW (India) and the children's film society of India. She dabbles with various visual styles and fills her sketchbooks with strange caricatures of people from places she travels to.

BEAUTY IS MISSING  is one of her fine creations.  The book provides stunning details about the buffaloes. I quote " Buffaloes are highly intelligent animals who love socializing with others of their kind. They 're often found wallowing in the mud or taking dust baths in order  to protect their sensitive skin  from sunburn and insects that bite. They enjoy grazing and being outdoors. Research shows that buffaloes also like listening to slow music. It helps alleviate stress and relaxes them."

The book supplies a new perspective towards an animal which we all see in our dat to day life, but never thought of it as a beauty. After reading this book not only children but all the adults are sure to remember beauty as when they see a buffalo.

Do pick  a copy of the book and help your children read it and know more beauty's choice and interests.
