Wonder House has always been a household name and a friend to all babies and toddlers thanks to their MY FIRST LEARNING LIBRARY which has been the first book boxset many of our kbc members have introduced to their childoos. In fact, this is one of the most recommended “must have first boxsets” for babies in our community. Quoting Girija:
I bought this set of 20 books when Baby M was of 6.5 months. It was a gamble that paid off quite well. We read these a lot of times throughout the day with M choosing which book she wanted us to read next. Absolutely recommend!
This was the set that made M fall in love with her books. At 10 months she could sit with these for an hour at a time!
We have an exciting announcement!
Drumroll….. We at Kids Book Café are community partners of Wonder House Books and hope to bring you their new releases as well as some interesting campaigns in the near future!!

The Always Happy Series: Driggety Droo The very Determined Dragon – A fun Story About Never Giving Up. Achira has this one. In her words:
Meet Driggety Droo-A petrifying dragon who looked very fearsome with razor-sharp teeth, dagger like toes and knife-like scales. Sounds super scary right? But wait a minute – do you think everyone feared him a lot? The answer to this question is no, because he was surely a dreadful looking beast but he could not breathe fire like others. Instead, whenever he opened his mouth, out came bubbles and only bubbles. This made him sad because he was like blue rat in the middle of loads of red rats. No matter how hard he tried, he could not breathe out fire. Other dragons made fun of him instead of being scared of him.
Why do you think he could not breathe fire? Was he not a real dragon? Do you think Driggety Droo will get demotivated, give up and throw in the towel? Or will he eventually learn to be a true fire breathing dragon. The breathtaking illustrations and the rhyming text really make it a fun read. And what Driggety learns at the end is something we all should remember for life. We really loved reading this book.
The Always Happy Series: Winky The Careless Little Wizard – A fun Story About Being Responsible. Girija has reviewed this book and her daughter Miss M loves it. Excerpts:
Winky is very very careless and is also the naughtiest wizard in the land of Dumble -dee -dim.
He is the best spell caster around but does not put his gift to any good use. Instead, he uses his magic to pull tricks and make others miserable. No amount of advice helps in stopping Winky’s tricks and one day he lands himself and others in a very big trouble. This makes Winky understand how his carelessness is affecting everyone and the importance of being responsible.
The book conveys its message through such a simple yet engaging story. Miss M was hooked to the storyline and the chirpy illustrations. The shoe turning into a pumpkin, honey coming out of witch’s nose, ice cream turning into a toad, all had M burst into peels of laughter.
We now have Winky references floating around the house throughout the day. The book has helped us make M understand what being responsible is.
The Always Happy Series: Alabaloo The Lost Alien – A fun Story About Making Friends
Asma has this book and has shared a mini review with inside pages in the kbc fb group. Quoting her:
This is such an apt story when kids have to deal with friends moving away from apartment to friends changing schools where they need to be comfortable in new environments and make new friends. The illustrations of overwhelm that Alabaloo faces and joy he finds in new friends builds and instant connect with little reader. Gently rhyming story subtly encourages little readers to be open to new friends and teaches inclusion to existing group of friends to involve a new kid.
Now with every new place/ activity that Ruhani has to go alone, she is assured that with friends you are never alone.
