Up World, Down World – In a canopy forest in India, the Up World and Down World have always been suspicious of each other. But it all changes when Gopa the dormouse drops her book by accident on Fatima’s head. A story about the biodiversity of the canopy forests and friendship. The book introduces some common forest canopy animals, with an epilogue of facts which makes a great starting point for a school project. This book is another great creative commons book from Storyweaver and Pratham Books.
Sample Page From Up World, Down World:
Fatima loved Sunday afternoons. After a lunch of beans and kofta, Maa would read the newspaper on her favourite chair and Baba would sneak away to take a nap.
