Giggi and Daddy is a beautiful book that reminds us of the fact that fathers are equally important in the parenting journey but are often forgotten. We celebrate mothers for giving birth, we celebrate a mother’s love but what about a father’s love and celebrating them for all that they do?
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.
Dealing with the tiring threes and fearsome fours wouldn’t have been easy if it was not for these books. Books can work like magic. I have felt this working with my boys all the time. I wanted to share our favourite books of the last one year which have made us smile and sail through all tantrums and meltdowns.
The one thing we all strive to teach our kids is that they are wonderfully unique, and that they should not only accept themselves the way they are but joyfully celebrate it. And while they are doing that, they should also equally accept the fact that everyone else is unique too. Here are some of the many, many books we have read on this topic.
The pandemic has been hard on us all, but it has been the hardest on the
3-6 year old’s who would have just started going to playschool / formal school and the pandemic upset everything. The tantrums and the meltdowns were inevitable. Here are the books we read to deal with the big emotions, settle the meltdowns and get the etiquette in place.
A book named “The ABCs of Virtues”, would it be preachy? This was the thought that came to my mind before we read this book. I worried needlessly. Not only was the book not preachy at all, it is probably one of the most unique books I’ve ever come across. Not written in a story form, it introduces 26 key virtues every child (human) should know – one for each alphabet!
