Watch the story:


This charming cumulative tale celebrates the tradition of hand-crafted dolls, inspired by the South Indian Thanjavur Thalai Atti Bommai. Starting with a little ball of clay, we see the fine dancing doll grow before our eyes. The rhythmic descriptive words, stacked in a delightfully repetitive way, invite children to chant along. The vibrant illustrations complete the vivid imagery.

Rhythmic story written by Sheela Preuitt and Praba Ram, beautifully illustrated by Debasmita Dasgupta, published by Pratham Books. Narrated by Asawari Doshi.
