 Buy Book: My Hopscotch Journey by Vitamin Simple

As Author Kajal Dharod says:
When we think about Thanksgiving festival- we always think about the USA thanksgiving in November. Thanksgiving is deep rooted in all cultures and the festival of Makar Sankranti is just that - India’s Thanksgiving festival - thankfulness for the sun, for the cattle, for the harvest and bringing sweet joys through Til guds.

As a parent I am always trying to look for interesting ways to teach values, traditions in a fun way to my kids. I was excited when I got to know Vitamin Simple is introducing their latest book on the theme of Makarsankranti as : My Hopscotch Journey. Authored by Kajal Dharod it takes you to different parts of India and explains how Makar Sankranti is celebrated in different forms.

I was happy I choose to order this book. I wouldnt have been able to explain the festival, its importance, how each state celebrates it and why. The book does all that without getting all preachy instead its lots of fun.

Here is my son enjoying the iDiwali book by Vitamin Simple. It was made in the form of an Ipad (hence the name iDiwali) so my son took a liking immediately. It has host of activities to explain the story of Diwali. He now remembers Queen Kaikai as the bad queen aunty who sent Ram, Lakshman and Sita to the forest. :D
