Ramu's Ride
An endearing tale of Ramu’s first tryst with the bicycle.

Title: Ramu’s Ride
Published By: MultiStory Learning Pvt. Ltd.
Author: Karishma
Illustrator: Suzzanne
Price: INR 200

What is it about: All of four, Ramu wants a bike.  Just like Sara’s.  But his father says no because he’s too small to ride one.  Then on a hot summers day Sara invites Ramu to ride on her cycle.  The result? An adventure which takes them from sheer delight in the animals and people they come across during the ride to a fall that sends them spinning downhill.  What happens to the frog, the hog and aunty on a jog all of whom Ramu and Sara came across on their way uphill? Will little Ramu ever own a bicycle?  Or will he wait to ride one till he grows up?  Read the book to know all about Ramu’s first bicycle ride and more. 
Why it stands Out:  Warm, friendly illustrations make this 60 page book a beautiful buy.  The story line is simple and the text rhymes wonderfully.  It teaches young readers about adventure, disappointment, believing in yourself, parental support and encouragement.   

Will be best enjoyed by: Young readers above 2 years

Tips for Moms and Teachers: Some activities you can link to this book are:
Play word games.  Encourage kids to make little rhymes.  Word games and jumbles at the end of the book are also good to indulge in.
