What I thought would be a casual and regular outing, turned out more difficult than I would have imagined or wished! No, not a trekking adventure or something as dangerous as that. A simple visit to the temple with my daughter. An ancient one, at that, the visit to the temple turned into more of a quiz with all rapid fire questions being fired at me! She has seen the pictures of the deities at home and thanks to grandparents, she can identify a few of them. But the prodding and interrogations took a new form when she saw the idols, photos and the various fascinating aspects a temple can reveal!

The Little Book of Hindu Deities - Sanjay Patel - review
The books are aimed at pre-school children aged 18 months to 4 years. Each book has been uniquely written and created to capture the simple essence of Story Telling for young children. To take children to an unknown world to develop and create their imagination whilst entwining their knowledge of these fantastic beings. I recently ordered the two new Hanuman and Laxmi books as I already had the first two and my daughter absolutely loves them and recites them word to word. Thank you for such lovely and easy books to read for a toddler xx. My lil one absolutely loves these books and so do I! I love that he learns of our religion in such a fun way!
