This is a continuation from my previuos post on “The books of 90’s“. Books has been so special in my life and help my imaginations a lot.

This is also a Touch and Feel Book by Van Fleet. It also describes sounds of various animals in the wild.
All the love in the world
This is my favorite book from the beginning as it describes about the bond between a mom and her baby, And the love is compared to cute chubby animals. Whenever I get frustrated by her tantrums I read this book to her and it helps both of us to calm down and show the love.

I was surprised to see favorite books of 80’s-90’s kids were available for this generation..
The Jungle Book is a slide, push and pull tab book. The most favourite and enjoyable book for AK and me

Our Hindu epic has many amazing mythological stories. We as South Indian Hindus has a traditions of celebrating Navaratri, a 9 days festivals and we have a custom of keeping Golu (God and Goddess idols on odd number of steps).
During Navaratri I purchased a few mythological books to explain her Goddesses. It wasn’t too early for her, she enjoyed listening to the stories and related the story to each idol on the Golu.

A set of books that introduced her to words and names of things around her, a technique followed by speech therapist.

Enjoys sowing, planting, watering my mom’s garden and learns about insects and bugs in the garden. A very creative pop-up book to increase attention for the young ever energetic minds. All the books in this Peep inside are amazing.
The rhyming words on each alphabet in this book is amazing.

F flamingo playing a flute
X X-ray fish playing the xylophone
AK’s favourite Y yak practising yoga
These are the books I have collected till now. She enjoys story time with me. When she is bored in the evening I tell her stories, she picks her book and silently listens to every detail and my expression.
She is also a wonderful story teller, when my father asks her to tell a story she would sit on his lap and recreate the story we have told her.
