Books selecting, caring and reading resources

- Need help selecting books

The details page of the book can give you all the information you need. Plus there is a Goodreads Reviews section that can help you make an informed selection. We are in the process of adding page views for books so you will have a sneak peek of what the book is all about.

And we are there to help you with book suggestions, reading tips and to get you started on the road to reading. You can call us at +91 9840910678 anytime.

- Categories, age group, tags – where do I begin?

The age group filter is to help you choose based on the age of your child. Most books overlap across age bands.

Categories are more for highlighting certain broad subjects, type of books. The Early Learning books will have ABC, Numbers, Shapes, Colours, Animals, First word books for babies and toddlers.

We have a good collection of Lift the flap and Touch and Feel books, do browse through them.

Unlike categories tags are more specific in nature. You can request for a tag to be created – say for “school” or “dogs”.

- Caring for books

Now this is a tough one. How can kids be trusted with books? They can be!

We as parents have to teach children on caring for books. It’s a form of discipline that needs to be inculcated right from the start.

Babies – No chewing. No reading at meal time.

Toddlers – No tearing. No throwing

Older Kids – No scribbling. No hitting sibling.

You can always get the children their own set of books from our gift shop. They still have to handle them with care.

Puzzles and Flashcards will be provided in their own sealed bags so you put them back for storage after use.

- Damage to books and other materials

As parents we will have to ensure the books are cared for and handled delicately. But accidents do happen. Minor ones can be overlooked but if the book is damaged considerably or is rendered unreadable it might require the cost for replacing.

Puzzles and flashcards become unusable even if one piece/card is lost.

- Resources for reading to babies and toddlers

The web is full of resources to aid parents reading to their children. You may find the links listed here useful.
