Laxmi's Mooch

My beautiful self!

Laxmi's friend Zoe requested her to be a cat for a role play at school one day because she had some hair above her lips. Laxmi instantly deluded herself and complained to her mother at home. Her parents stated that body hair was natural and normal for everyone. But did Laxmi reconcile with her 'mooch'?

We picked this book for its title. Little Laxmi's dilemma is one that many children deal with daily. The author delivered a story with humor and excitement while being child-friendly. The illustrations are vibrant and colorful, and they help to enhance the tale.

The body-positive narrative of Shelly Anand's Laxmi's Mooch, whimsically drawn by Nabi H. Ali, will inspire every child to accept their physical look.
