In the end of Chapter 8, we see Kip comforting the ayah of his family. She is mourning the death of her mother. The analysis for this chapter says that it is Kip mourning his own mother and scratching her dead body. Did I read wrong or is the analysis wrong?

Kip's ayah was the only mother he knew..... she comforted him and gave him the love and care his parents didn't. Thus, we can infer that in this situation, he is mourning the loss of the only mother he'd ever known.
