Veeru Goes to the Circus is a delightful story about little Veeru who goes to the circus and comes with some super ideas. Written by Richa Ingle Deo and illustrated by Reshma Barve, the book published by Pratham Books is a wonderful read.
Veeru’s grandparents take him to the Jumbo-Mumbo circus. There Veeru is fascinated by the many acts. He decides to come home and imitate those acts. He calls his parents and grandparents to his circus and plans to relive it. However for every act of his, they are worried if it would be safe for him. How he manages to recreate the circus atmosphere and make every act special is what the book is all about.
Simple words coupled with the wonderful imagination of the author make the book a lovely read for children. The author has managed to capture all the special acts of the circus and connected it in a way or other with how Veeru performs at home. I loved Veeru’s juggling act.
The illustrations are lovely. Check out how Reshma Barve manages to change Veeru’s facial expressions in every page. Colourful and vibrant colours make the book a page turner.
Recommended for its imagination and fun element.
