The next most important thing we had to do was to look for a party event company who could arrange kids entertainment for us.

Finding a good party organizer was a challenge.We contacted many but got a negative response from them all. Some were fully booked and some didn’t have the items we wanted.After wasting a week on phone calls and visits , our hard work paid off and we finally managed to get things arranged/prepared for the event.

TALES FROM THE TREASURE CHEST

Tales for the Treasure Chest written by Ayesha Marfani

Many of you might not know this by I am a book lover and love reading books (I don’t get much time now though due to my mommy duties) but I encourage Princess Z to do so and not a day goes by when I don’t read her,her favorite story book or narrate her a children’s story book through which she can learn something new.

Recently I took some time out and got the opportunity to read ‘Tales from the Treasure Chest’ and I loved it.This book is written and illustrated in a such beautiful way that I wanna tell you guys about it.

The book ‘Tales from the Treasure Chest’ is a collection of 3 short stories written by Ayesha Marfani (her first published children book) published by Crimson Cloak publishing.

About the Author 👩🏻
with multiple degrees in psychology, commerce, and education, Ayesha Marfani has always had an avid passion for learning. Her love of reading led her to take her writing hobby and turn it into a career.Her inspiration stems from her 9 siblings and her own family that support her passion for writing. A homeschooling educator, Ayesha understands woes that arise when one does not have a voice. Her work with counseling produces a unique perspective that allows her to take everyday triggers and weave stories that inspire and educate.

About the Book 📖

The book ‘Tales from the Treasure Chest’ is a collection of 3 short witty stories with moral lessons:

The first story tilted ‘Exhortation Valley’ is a story about two twins Sara and Saira who are not satisfied with themselves.
Saira-a beautiful girl but still ungrateful with the way she looks and wishing for more while her twin sister Sara-with beautiful pastel skin:still ungrateful for not being as beautiful as her sister.

One day they learn a lesson to appreciate the blessings of Allah and be content.Allah has created us with highest perfection and the story revolves around these facts,teaching the child to be satisfied with their looks.

The second story titled ‘Small Feet,Big Shoes’. evolves around the bitter relationship of Zainab and Ahmad and their parents.How the two kids exchange roles with their parents thinking that being a parent is an easy job and the parents accept the challenge as they want them to know that being a parent is not as easy as they think.I won’t tell you who wins the battle!.Read the book yourself to find out 🙂

The third and the final story ‘Being Human is Being Everything’ is a story about a boy Abdul Jalil whose fathers thinks he can’t do anything in life.Everyone around him thinks he’s a loser and can’t achieve anything.Struck by those words he decides to go on a journey to find a job, and prove his worth but becomes corrupt, a cheat,fraud and a cruel vicious person.Later on realizing that being a good human is a bigger challenge than having everything else.

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.

3.Money is not everything in the world.

Tales From The Treasure Chest is an excellent read that will make your child know the importance of and make them learn and understand the little things in life

I loved everything about this book and think it’s an extraordinary read for both parents and children.

If you love reading than I highly recommend you get your hands on this book. 👍🏻
