The wheels of a cycle, a merry-go-round, a spinning top… Kayu lives in his own quiet world filled only with circles and the patterns they make.

Inspired by a child with autism, the story makes the worlds of different children intersect, and sensitively evokes the coming together of their strengths.

A brilliant book!

This book 'Kayu's World is Round' from @tulikabooks hits home for us, brilliant book about mother's fear of missing out. Let your child be, understand what they like and work around that, both of you would be happier! Sonil, @footloosemama

What is needed instead is a respectful acceptance of differences, as evoked in Lavanya Kapahi’s book Kayu’s World is Round (2019), illustrated by Aditee Deore and published by Tulika Publishers Chintan Girish Modi, mad in asia pacific
