Having heard of the fantastically adorable Tuk Tuks from my husband’s travels to India, I was excited when I received “Roo The Little Red Tuk Tuk” by Nadishka Aloysius to review for this year’s Multicultural Children’s Book Day.
Following the life and adventures of relatable and sweet, Roo the Tuk Tuk, Ms. Aloysius not only shares a glimpse into Sri Lankan culture, but also shares with children the idea of finding one’s own path in life. In Ms. Aloysius own words, “the underlying theme is that “You are never too little to make a difference” – and I couldn’t agree more with her.
This brightly illustrated, warm, and engaging book is an excellent choice for teachers, librarians, caregivers, and parents hoping to share in a read aloud that is both centering and eye-opening. Free ebooks and paperbacks for purchase are available at Amazon. Enjoy!
