Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Wheatley
Neeraj's mother is making chapatis, Indian flat bread, and shares a piece of dough with Neeraj. Now Neeraj must decide what he will make with his dough, and as he does, his imagination takes over. Neeraj goes through the steps of kneading, rolling, and shaping his dough, creating different creatures such as a long snake with a pointy tale and two eyes which "is going to bite me" he yells. Next he creates a mouse which will run all over the house and then a cat which will drink up all the milk and grow into a lion with big teeth. Each time his mom tells him to "Roll it up, quick, quick!" and he does. Finally, Nerraj rolls his dough into a ball, presses it flat, rolls it into a circle, and cooks it on the tava or baking stone. Simple illustrations focus the reader on the Neeraj, his dough creations, and the animals he imagines, while the simple text makes this book great for reading aloud and beginning readers. Nayar includes directions on how to make chapatis at home and a page that shows the pronunciation and definition of chapatis and tava. This book was originally printed in India simultaneously in English and Hindi and would be a great resource when studying India and Indian culture. Reviewer: Barbara Wheatley

Read an Excerpt

Neeraj's mother was kneading dough.
She was going to make chapatis.
She gave Neeraj some dough to play with.

Neeraj squeezed the dough.
"What should I make? " he said.

Neeraj rolled the dough back and forth,
back and forth, into a long rope.
At one end of the rope he poked two tiny eyes.
The other end became a pointed tail.

"A snake! A snake!"

"It's going to bite me!" Neeraj yelled.

"Roll it up, quick, quick!" his mother said.

Neeraj quickly rolled up the snake.

"What should I make now?" Neeraj said.
