Book Review - Kids Books #3


In continuation to the reviews of the educations books that I bought for my son.

Here are the reviews of 3 more...

Interesting book with nice concept
The book contains many good colorful images to look at and learn.
The title itself is very intriguing. And the concepts shared inside are not just for kids, some are for adults too.
A must have book for kids around 10 year old age. 
Do not buy it for kids under 8-9 years old and it would only confuse them.

"This is one complicated book. Seriously. It is not for small children, it is for 10+ age kids.

I see that is a collection of various scenarios where Wonderhouse has shown how vision helps us in day-to-day scenario. It is a very different book. And truly deserves the award.

As I was scrolling through it, I realized how much efforts author/s must have made to compile this book. 
It is a genuine collection and the way various scenarios are depicted, it is amazing.
I couldn't help but spend couple of minutes on each page, trying to soak in every minute detail mentioned there.
You just cannot skip through it. It is that wonderful.
If you kid is 10+ and has a curiosity level of an Elephant, then this book is a must-buy for you."

Ever missed those childhood days? Well I did recently after going through this marvellous book.
Well, it is not just any book, it is a collection of beautiful poems that we used to hear long ago.
These days our kids only listen to what Youtube offers. But this book is amazing.
Using it, I am now able to sing the poems to my little one. And though he cannot read as of now, he is too young for it, he can relate to the images in the book and recite with me.
I just love this book

Hope you enjoy reading it.

Lots of Love

Book Review - 100 Selected Poems, W. B. Yeats


The mastermind behind the Irish literary Renaissance, William Butler Yeats had a remarkable literary career spanning across five decades.
This collectable edition brings together his early poems along with some of his finest verses composed in the years following his Nobel Prize. It includes The Wanderings of Oisin, ‘The Sad Shepherd’, ‘The Stolen Child’, ‘The Lake of Innisfree’, ‘The Sorrow of Love’, ‘When You Are Old’, ‘An Irish Airman foresees his Death’, ‘The Second Coming’, ‘Sailing to Byzantium’, ‘Leda and the Swan’ and ‘Byzantium’.
Each poem gives an insight into Yeats’ beliefs, philosophy and also the times in which he wrote. Each is a specimen of his exquisite craftsmanship.


"Such a beautiful collection

""When you are old and grey and full of sleep, And nodding by the fire, take down this book, And slowly read…""

The above quote is at the back of the book, however, though I am young, I could not stop myself from reading this amazing collection.

W.B. Yeats, I am now a member of your fanbase. What amazing work. I just loved every word of your poems.

The beauty of the words from this talented poet is that, his words are a combination. Though you are reading a poem, you will feel that it is a story that is being played in front of your eyes. I am mesmerized.

Plus, the hardback makes it so easy to preserve and cherish for life.

If you like to read classics and poems, than this book is for you."

Hope you enjoy reading it.

Book Review - The Prophecies of Nostradamus


“Being seated by night in secret study,
Alone resting on the brass stool:
A slight flame coming forth from the solitude,
That which is not believed in vain is made to succeed.”

More than four centuries ago, Nostradamus, a French physician and seer, predicted many events which later shook the world. The Great Fire of London, the rise of Hitler to power, the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the assassination of President John Kennedy and the 9/11 terrorist attacks are some of the events he prophesied.
The Prophecies is a collection of Nostradamus’ oracular quatrains containing his predictions. This edition is a translation by Edgar Leoni.



Nostradamus has always fascinated me. His prophecies have always intrigued me.

He was a fictional character in one of the shows I watched years ago, 'Reign'. And the way his far-sightedness is depicted there forced me to dwell on his powers.

Who was he? What aided his sights? What triggered them? And so many more questions always pop in my mind when I think about this mastermind.
Well, what can we say today, he is a character of the past and we cannot do much about it.

Hence, when I saw this book, i was intrigued.
This book contains so many nostradomus's prophecies. They are just amazing.

Yes, it would have been better if they were translated well, and centuries were labeled properly. But at the price and levels, this is the best we can expect.

I am still in awe of this book."

Hope you enjoy reading it.

Book Review - Second Go


Penned in real time, from the hospital bed while battling for life, on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone’s 4x2 inch keypad, the only device allowed to the patient in her super-sanitized recuperating room, this book follows a hybrid format of medico-psycho thriller, interspersed with SMS chats, transcripts of medical records and other workings of an addled mind overcome by sickness, yet determined to pull through.
It is a first-hand account of a liver transplant recipient’s journey in India, chronicled from the patient’s perspective in vivid detail as a series of dramatic events unfold in her life, completing the cycle from sickness to health, despair to hope.
It also tells the story of a single mom and breadwinner of the family, her strong bonding with her adoptive daughter and her family and friends’ support.
The author hopes that this book will give courage and direction to other patients whose lives are hanging by a thread, patients awaiting a life-saving cadaveric organ donation.


"life is unpredicatable, but no matter what it throws at us, we should endure it with strenght and smile.

Second Go is a non-fiction book based on real-life events. The author has penned down her journey of pain and sufferings. Due to some unfortunate circumstances, she had to get a liver transplant. And this book narrates what went down in her life.

The story starts in a turmoil to get a liver. And it ends with her being saved. Throughout the book we see how a person struggles in today's advanced medical world. How a patient and his/her family lives in a constant fear of losing a loved one. How financial situations wreak havoc. And how a normal person goes insane in the entire process.

In a way, esp for me, it is a very depressing book because the way it is written, you can feel the pain of the author -- this is a compliment for the author as her writing style is amazing. But, all throughout I had to keep one thing in the mind, everything ended well because this book is a proof that the author (i.e. the patient in the book) is alive and writing.

This book is for everyone who is or knows someone suffering from a life-threatening disease. I would recommend it to them."

Hope you enjoy reading it.

Book Review - A Little Princess


"I pretend I am a princess, so that
I can try and behave like one.”
When the kind and imaginative seven-year-old Sara Crewe reaches Miss Minchin’s Select Seminary for Young Ladies with her papa, she doesn’t quite like it.
“I don’t like it, papa,” she said. “But then
I dare say soldiers—even brave ones—
don’t really like going into battle.”
The apple of her father’s eye, Sara has all the privileges at the seminary and is treated with special care. Soon enough, she befriends her classmates and is nicknamed a ‘princess’, which she often pretends to be.
But just after her eleventh birthday, when the news of her father’s death arrives, everything changes.
Will Sara Crewe's imagination help her
cope up with the loss and hardships?
One of the all-time children’s novels, Frances Hodgson Burnett’s A Little Princess is a remarkable story. It has been adapted for films, theatre, musicals, and television, and continues to remain popular more than a century after its publication.


"A little princess is not just a children's fantasy tale, instead it is also a story of love, friendship and morals.

It is a story of Sara, a motherless child who is raised by her father. She moves to London for her education, and everyone in her school calls her a Princess because in every way she is one. Her father is very rich and she practically has everything. However, things turn upside down when her father die suddenly and she becomes an orphan.

Now, without a penny to her name she is forced to do chores for others and live in a lonely creepy attic.

What is wonderful is the way Sara's character has been developed. In either scenarion, when she is rich and poor, she doesn't stop helping others. And doesn't stop dreaming.

It is a beautiful story of love and life. and i cherished reading it."

Hope you enjoy reading it.

Book Review - Kids Books #2


"ABC… a starting point and where kids don't take interest in them, this book helps.
I gave it to my 3 year old and now he is interested.
It is a sturdy book, so it does not damage easily. He even poured milk on it, and this book survived.
A must have"

"Beautiful collection of 'Pet and farm animals' and 'Wild Animals'

This one small book contains around 100 animals with nice attractive photos. My son found them very interesting.
 The cover itself contains nice photos, 6 in front and 2 on back which immediately hook the child and peaks his interest.

The book is divided in 4 parts, 'Pet and farm animals' and 'Wild animals', 'Birds' and 'Sea animals' so we can teach one section at a time.

A nice book to have. Would recommend it to all parents"

"Perfect books for toddlers
It is a nice collection of shapes filled with various colors. It not just teaches identification, but also help kids relate.
A must have for every 2+ age child"

Hope you enjoy reading it.

Book Review - My First All in 1

"A great book for toddlers

As the name suggests, this one book has all. It contains alphabets and numbers.
Basically everything that a new learner kids need.
The photos associated with alphabets and numbers are very attractive and do a good job in attracting kids.
And given it is a hardcover book, it is difficult for kids to ruin it. They can throw it as much they like. This book will endure all"

Hope your kids enjoy it too.

Book Review - Dipa Karmakar


On August 14, 2016, a young girl, India’s first female gymnast to compete at the Olympics, landed the Produnova that took her to the cusp of an Olympic medal. She came fourth yet soared into the hearts of millions across the globe.
Dipa Karmakar’s fourth-place finish at the Rio Olympic Games was a defining moment for Indian sport, which had barely cast a glance at the sport of gymnastics as a medal discipline till then. Dipa’s journey from Tripura, an oft-neglected sporting outpost, to the national consciousness and India’s highest sporting honour, the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award, is one of grit, determination and a stubbornness to beat the odds.

A beautiful story of Dipa Kamarkar who went to Olympics and stood fourth. The way it is written, and narrated is wonderful.
You cannot help but feel the awe of it. 
I just fell in love with the book and it has inspired me to do something worthwhile in my life too. 
A must have book. You just cannot skip reading it.

Hope you enjoy reading it.

Lots of Love
