The traditional Warli style of tribal art from western India is deceptively simple, yet very dynamic, almost like a series of fluid pictograms. People in Warli images are constantly on the move, always doing something. Taking a cue from this, each image in this book is a narrative built around a verb. Do! can be used in many ways – as a picture book, to learn language, to discover new stories on each page, to talk about village life, or to learn how to draw in the Warli style.
For every one word like 'Pull', 'Farm', 'Grow', 'Climb' or 'Dance' the illustrators have drawn a riot of drawings around the word which emphasize the word and teach children what exactly the word means. I loved the pages of 'Climb', 'Eat', 'Cook', ' Read' :) There is even a depiction of 'Fight'
