Review: Prashant Karhade has succeeded well in writing the perfect children’s series for ages 3-7. These stories all teach very valuable lessons giving children good advice on the importance of friendship, the amazing things you can see when you take the time to look around, as well as other delightful lessons about life. These books are perfect for children with some beautiful illustrations by Milind Deshpande. Every parent should own a copy of these beautiful little books.
Synopsis: The Hungry Python conveys to your kid the essence of the life of a python in a simple story with lively illustrations. Additionally, the days of the week are seamlessly built into the story.
Kiki & Meeka will teach your kid the value that you have to help those who help you, although in a very subtle and implicit way. The concept of the 4 directions (North, East, West, and South) is also seamlessly built into the story. It will also teach your kid a strategy to implement if one gets lost, which can be a starting point for many meaningful discussions.
The Dinosaur Cloud will teach your kid the concept of speed and which vehicles are faster than which vehicles. The story uses clouds to teach this concept in a very interesting way, and will implicitly teach your kids to look at the clouds as you can see fascinating shapes in them.
