The rain clouds are long gone and the dry season scorches the land. Everything is new for the baby giraffe. As she bounds ahead and lags behind, her mother patiently explains the ways of the grasslands. And until she grows a little taller, older and wiser, her mother reminds her: “You’re strong with me.”

This beautiful picture book by Chitra Soundar and illustrated by Poonam Mistry is a wonderful book set in Africa with a mother Giraffe and her baby. This heart-warming tale of parental love is full of reassurance and for young children, a wonderful lyrical book for bedtime. The illustrations are truly stunning – young children will me mesmerised by the geometric patterns in golds, reds and greens and spotting the stylised folklore animals hidden within the pages.

Chitra Soundar is an Indian-born British author and storyteller, who has published more than 30 books inspired by the rich heritage of folktales from India and India's natural beauty.
