Kali and the Rat Snake
Kali's father is a snake catcher - the best in the village. Kali knows that is really something to be proud of, but at school he sometimes gets embarrassed. The other children seem to think there is something very strange about having a snake catcher for a father and eating things like fried termites for a snack. Plus, Kali is the teacher's pet. How will he ever make friends?
"Energetic color illustrations by Srividya Natarajan pepper this delightful children’s story from Zai Whitaker about accepting differences and learning to appreciate the talents in oneself and others. Highly recommended." - Children's Bookwatch
"...ideal for teaching children about acceptance. The sense of belonging and finding one’s identity is a story that is hard to make relatable to children. This one does so without preaching." - Toy Directory
"A great book about friendship and being careful not to judge others.
