Kali’s Song

Kali’s Song
Jeanette Winter

                Kali lived thousands of years ago. He is about to become a man and go on his first hunt. To help him prepare, his dad has given him his first bow and arrows. Kaili heads out to the woods to practice. But he learns that he can make a beautiful sound with his bow and his mouth. So every day he heads to the woods to practice. But he’s practicing his music and not his hunting skills. The day of the big hunt arrives. When he spots the mammoths in the distance he runs to a hill to get a closer look. But he forgets all about the hunt and begins to play his music. The animals are entranced and come closer to hear the music. His tribe members assume he is a special shamam with magical powers. Everyone is proud of him and he grows up to cure many people and do great things. But he never forgets his music even in his old age. This book has a heartwarming message about following your heart and being your own person. I also liked that it promoted not killing the animals. The illustrations are well done and fit the cave man story line.
This book is for ages 4 to 8.

 I received this book free of charge from Children's Literature in exchange for my honest review.
