Why Read This Book?
This 40 page book is an interesting and a wonderful read for children 6-10 years old/(also very interesting to narrate it to younger kids).A book which teach the kids as well as the parents moral lessons like
1.One should always be grateful with what they have rather than complain about what they don’t. (An important lesson every one should be thought)
2.Parent should be lenient with their children…avoiding too much strictness as this can lead their children to hate them.Similarly, children should be aware that being a parent is not an easy task and an ultimate responsibility.
