Recommended Books: Manjishta’s Book Collection (1-5 years)
Rate this Book / Post

This is my daughter Manjishta’s book collection right from the age of 1.6 yrs. This contains mostly story books, activity books, fun books, learning books. She is very fond of activity & sticker books which I keep buying from time to time.

Both she and I are looking forward to add much more books to her collection in the future.

Books can help teach life lessons

Books are one wonderful way to grow and keep a kid busy. Moral or life lessons which we aren’t able to say or teach directly can be understood through books.

Books help in dealing with difficult issues

Books have helped me in grooming her personality and deal with difficult situations. To name some:

Why? An utterly bonkers book of questions by Natascha Rosenberg
Pepper cleans his room
Pepper crosses the road
The emperor’s new clothes
Argh Stegosaurus
Little Cloud by Eric Carle

I’m listing down her most cherished books so you can also buy some for your children. Will add reviews of each book slowly. Thank you.
