Teach your children about the animals of the forest with this fun and educational book. Five animals - a brown bear, wolf, squirrel, otter and deer - are explored through rhyme, pictures and pull-out cards to construct into 3D figures. With two spreads dedicated to each animal, adults will be able to read the short playful rhyme on each spread to children and look at the bright illustrations to teach them about their habits and environment. The inside of the dust jacket is printed full colour with a graphical representation of the animals' environment.
The makers of skirt cloths like this were professional male embroiderers of Kutch’s Mochi community in Gujarat, northwestern India. The Mochi embroiderers were originally leather workers and had developed a technique of silk embroidery on leather using a type of hooked awl to create its fine chain-stitch. This method was later adapted for use on cloth and became their speciality. The Mochi work of Kutch is among the finest embroidery ever produced in India, and was used for textiles at the Mughal court as well as for the wealthy patrons of urban Gujarat.
