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.

So we decided to cover the syllabus at home.
That was the first time in these 20 months that me and Aanya were all alone (or you can say our “me time” with No rulezzzzz)
