Reading Essentials : A nearly-four-year-old’s list for other tiny ones.

Swatantra Kalra sends us the following report:   


Reet is three year and ten months old. I have been reading her books since the age of three months; her first book Cow wants to sing a song is a favourite of all even today. I have always loved how she remembers the sentences from few books and keep on repeating them throughout the day and now in the nights she will says, ‘Mom Mujhe book read kar do!’

  1. Nanhi Kho Gayee – Kamal Kant Koner

Nanhi kho gayee. I love sonpankhi. I love title. Nanhi is sad.

  1. Jab aaye pahiye – Aup Rai

Gol Gol go!

This is utterly adorable. And you have hindi books in the collection too! Reet, for a three year old, you are very well-read. We look forward to getting more lists!
