#SaturdaySchool is back with a post in the series: Have You Read? This will have reviews of books for your young ones. Today I will be reviewing My Hopscotch Journey.
When my kids were small, I used to always be on the look out for different kinds of books to read to them. But thirty years ago, besides the sets of Time Life and Child Craft books, there were hardly any story –cum-activity books that you could pick up at a reasonable price.
Which is why I was so delighted to come across Vitamin Simple Unbox by Kajal Dharod. These are not just books but activity packages with stories, songs, busy sheets and more that tickle the child’s imagination and provide fun ways to look at, group sort and understand a variety of topics.
This month we celebrate Sankranti or Pongal or Lohri or Uttarayan in various parts of our country, so what better book to review than My Hopscotch Journey!
My Hopscotch Journey
An Interactive Story and Activity Book.
A curtain raiser into India’s unity in diversity. A dazzling adventure where fantasy showcases festivities.
Join Pari in a dazzling adventure of festive wonder. Follow the instructions within the book and embark upon a magical journey. A book with actions for kids to do while reading the story and experience activities to reinforce the story. Each page turn is lifting of a curtain to experience India’s cultural diversities. A fun quest across India to learn about the Sun Festival – Makar Sankranti and its various forms Lohri, Pongal, Uttrayan and the religious fairs.
Where Jaggery meets Geography … Not just a book, an experience!
Experience an adventure that occurs on a simple printed page with more than 15 activities and crafts.
The book is a delightful mixture of a story, activities and information. The book is suitable for kids from 4 to 8. With the younger ones you will have to read to and with them and supervise the various activities like creating a sun catcher, or making a happiness bouquet.
Pari , a little girl has a magic box which she calls her sunshine box and with the help of the angel of the box, she travels to different parts of the country to see how people in the different regions of India celebrate Sankranti.
As she travels to the different states, she joins in the celebration. She dances and sings and eats the special food of that state. Your child can join her in her journey and do the various activities provided at the back of the book, using stickers and shapes and ice cream sticks that come with the book.
It is a complete kit in itself and you don’t need to get any other material to complete the busy sheets.
