With school being out and summer break just about to begin, we will be spending a lot of time at home then venturing out in this blistering heat!!! What better way to spend time at home by reading books!
So, here are our current favourites:
1. The Princess and The Wizard by Julia Donaldson
This is a beautiful story about a princess who has been captured by a wizard and how she has been given 7 chances to escape by changing her colour and shapes. This is a perfect story for kids above 3 years. It has it’s own magic and little bit of superpowers and a child should be told that this isn’t a real story but a fairy tale.
2. Topsy And Tim Series
Topsy and Tim is a perfect series for toddlers and preschoolers as they talk about various events and places Kids will be able to relate to it a lot and can identify themselves and their surroundings better!!
3. The Ant and the Grasshopper by Aesop
This is a classic fable apt for the summer season and must be told to all the children. It has a very good moral as well that being lazy won’t get you anywhere.
4. Unicorn Wings by Mallory Loehr
We had recently attended a unicorn themed birthday party and my little one has been asking a lot of questions about them..So, I picked up this very basic book to talk about unicorns. It’s essential to tell your child that this is fictional and a fantasy character.
5. Catch That Cat! by Tharini Viswanath
A beautiful story written by an Indian author about a disabled girl saving the cat. It talks about grit and determination of this free spirited though disabled girl and that one doesn’t need superpowers to help or save anyone.
Hope this list of books gets added to your summer list. Do let me know in comments, if you liked them as we do!
