Review: One Day Elsewhere: A Giant Leap: 1969, We Walked on the Moon.

It’s a stunning book that talks about a momentous event in history; the first step on the Moon. You must be wondering what’s so unique. The story is told from the eye of a young girl. June is waiting for her baby brother’s little steps to land whereas everyone else in the world is waiting for the astronauts to walk on the Moon.

My 4 year old’s Mythology Mania – Mahabharata (For 4-7 years)

We were gifted a version of the Mahabharata. The book looked a bit old school and while big print, it was still quite a lot of text. 108 pages of text! I didn’t expect my 4.5 year old to take to it, but oh was I surprised. He didn’t just enjoy it, instead he has delved into the subject as if he’s preparing for a kiddies doctoral thesis.

Review: Strong as Fire, Fierce as Flame.

Pickle Yolk Books have award winning and incredibly beautiful picture books for 3-7yrs. Each one of them is unique – from the topic/issue the author chooses to address, to the unparalleled illustrations, to the directness and candidness, to the subtle nuances. We strongly feel that every parent who is raising a sensitive and kind child must ensure at least a few (if not all!) of these enchanting books are included in the home library.
