  1. Hi! This is Gitali from Kolkata. Got connected to your blog by my friend Jaya Padma through her FB profile. My 10 year old daughter, Ishanee is excited to see so many kids of her age sending their favourite book lists and has developed her own as well! I am keen to take it to other kids of her age through your blog. Can you suggest how?

    Thanks! Gitali
