Sonia Mehta (I love her for the kind of series she releases for young children) has come up with another book that doesn’t involve mathematical skills or analytical skills. This book is about the festivals of India. Right from Lohri that is celebrated in the month of January to Christmas celebrated in the month of December, this book briefly describes the history, reason and the rituals that govern the festivals. Collation of information about 60 festivals, this book is very informative, colourful and interactive as well. It is well-suited for the likes of children.
Overall, Festivals of India is a must-buy for all the parents who want their children to learn about the celebrations at a young age.
Discover India series by Sonia Mehta is a must read series that takes the readers on a memorable journey of India. Festivals of India is the upcoming instalment in this series that again has Mishki and Pushka all excited because Daadu Dolma is going to tell them about the various colour festivals of India.
Festivals of India book is full of colourful illustrations, pictures, fun facts, history and strategically placed games like sudoku, mazes, spot the difference etc. to engage and enlighten the readers in a fun way.
The festivals are arranged according to the time they are celebrated and simple language with lots of visual matter makes this book interesting not only to kids but also adults.
Even my three year old loved it. He is always eager for me to read it to him and then sits for long periods flipping pages to see the photos in this book.
Apart from my kid's obvious love for the book, I also learned so much about the festivals from this book. Njkinny recommends Discover India: Festivals of India by Sonia Mehta to everyone looking for an engaging, informative, interactive and beautifully presented book. Super shiny 5 stars to it from me and I look forward to reading more books from this series to my child.
A great gift for your kid this festive season, grab your copy and educate your children about India's culturally rich festivals and their history.
India is a fascinating country. It’s the land of diversity. Indians celebrate numerous festivals the entire year. Festivals may be celebrated due to religious reasons, mostly. However, they bring the family together and unwind the monotony of life.
Festivals also are the reason that keeps us connected with roots, philosophy, and origin. Upon celebrating these festivals, we are passing our culture to kids. Preserving it.
Sonia Mehta has done a commendable job, again. Her series of Discover India with Mishki, Pushka and wise Daadu Dolma is back. In the book “Festivals of India”, she takes readers to celebrations from January to December across the nation. Starting from Lohri to Christmas. Also, there are tribal festivals. The book surely is the fruits of intense research.
She revisits the festivals with the stories behind the celebrations, the essence of it and a special feast made.
The book is full of colorful illustrations, fun quizzes, facts, sudoku, spot the difference, etc making the book interesting for readers.
If you are a parent looking out to introduce India, the traditions, and festivals celebrate, you must get this book.
The book is aimed for readers 8 + years, though the illustrations are catchy for younger audiences and information for all age groups.
Many festivities which I haven't heard but would definitely love the kids to learn about.
Reading about festivals is now made so much fun with this book.
