Jump and crawl and climb with Satya as he goes along with his mother to the farm where she works. A story about the different and wonderful ways in which we move.
Satya, Watch Out!
Author - Yamini Vijayan
Satya can’t stay still.
... and falls!
\"Sit quietly for a minute!\"
\"If you get hurt, don’t come crying to me,\"
\"Don’t you dare break anything!\"
\"You\'re disturbing the class,\"
says his teacher.
But what can Satya do
if his hands and legs are always dancing?
Today is Sunday.
It’s Satya’s favourite day of the week —
the day he goes to the farm where Amma works.
It’s a long walk to the farm,
through secret up-and-down paths,
open fields, thick forests
and gently flowing streams.
Satya hops like a hare
and sprints like a deer.
\"The mud is squishy. Be careful!\"
He crawls like a centipede
and slithers like a snake.
\"Look out for thorns!\" says Amma.
He swings like a spider
and leaps like a langur.
\"Use the strong branches, my little monkey,\"
He paddles like a duck
and swims like a frog.
\"Stay in the shallows, okay?\"
He climbs like a lizard
and jumps like a goat.
Satya flaps his arms like wings
and tries to fly away.
himself soaring and gliding like a vulture.
Late in the evening,
when the sun sets and crickets
begin to hum,
it’s time to go home.
Tired Satya climbs on to his mother\'s back.
They return through the up-and-down paths,
fields, forests and streams.
At home, Appa, Akka and Thaatha take one look at bruised and muddy Satya,
and burst into laughter.
Thaatha bathes him.
Appa cooks him dinner.
Akka tells him his favourite story as he falls asleep.
In his dreams, Satya runs and jumps
and spins and rolls...
... and flies away!
