Books for Preschoolers

Preschoolers- the age group of 3-5 years is a question bank๐Ÿ˜€. Innumerable questions- why, what, how? 

As they enter the preschools, their curiosity and inquisitiveness knows no bounds. 

Colourful classrooms satiate their little explorative mind. Interactive gaming, painting imaginations, making friends, learning to be more disciplined are few of the milestones of this age. This is the time when they are introduced to first numbers, alphabets, shapes, colours, art and craft. 

But all mothers can echo, kids are back home, sooner than expected, from school ๐Ÿ˜€(as preschools are just 2-3 hours long). So what about long day hours at home?

Here I have curated a list of a few books, which can be a perfect addition to your little one's bookrack.


1. Read it yourself with Ladybird (Level 1):
Ladybird Level 1 learning books are best for preschoolers who are learning phonics and hence making up little words. These books are written in simple words with beautiful illustrations. A small questionnaire and the jumbled up story sequence at last is really exciting for kids and they feel proud in answering them. My preschooler loves to read them.
You can check the books here:
* Ladybird Level 1- Astronauts
* Ladybird Level 1- Cinderella
* Ladybird Level 1- Goldilocks and three bears
* Ladybird Level 1- The Magic Porridge Pot
* Ladybird Level 1- The Enormous Turnip
* Ladybird Level 1- The Three Billy Goats Gruff

2.  The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers-

This book can be one of the best additions to a children's book cabinet. 'The Day the Crayons Quit' is a unique representation about all the crayons who decide to quit one day due to different reasons, which though hilarious, are all correct. A great book to teach the importance of using crayons wisely. Check the book here- The Day the Crayons Quit 

3. The Day the Crayons Came Home By Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers (Sequel to- The Day the Crayons Quit)

This book is another fun-read and shares the humorous narratives of different crayons. Read them in a funny way to your kids and you will enjoy it too. In addition, children will learn various colour names plus names of different objects of those colours too.

4. The Gruffalo (1) by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler

This book should be a must for kids. It teaches kids how to be smart and fearless, both at the same time. A little clever and fearless mouse makes a fool of a monster, of whom the whole jungle is scared. But how? Check "The Gruffalo" here-

5. Creativity Beyond (1) by Blueprint Education:

I saw Creativity Beyond as a school art book of one of my friends' child. I liked the book so much that I ordered it for my kids during summer vacations. If you and your kids love art and craft work, you won't be disappointed. It has multiple art and craft activities and you can spend some enriching time with your kids. Get your masterpiece creativity framed to adorn your wall. You can check the book 'Creativity Beyond' here-

6. Babyhug Junior Artist- First Step to Big Learning:

Its beautiful bag-like packing is the first attraction for kids. It contains 10 colouring books with various topics- numbers, first words, space, vehicles etc. Kids love to colour during their pre-primary years and this could be a great addition to their bookshelf Plus the books can be kept neatly inside the book-bag, once they are finished.

Poem: A Mother's First Day @ School

From tummies to laps, from crawls to jumping jacks...Time just flies with little ones. Then comes the day, when these naughty champs have to begin their journey called life. First step: The 'Preschool', after which they won't be wholly ours. Beginning of school years brings a huge relief to mum's life but the first day of separation @ school is the heaviest for mom and child both. Here, I have tried to pen a poem which explains the emotions of a mother on the very first day of preschool. A Mother's First Day @ School In new uniform Let me behold this sight. My little one Is grown up now Then why is this fright? Big school, Big classrooms, Much bigger than her height. Am I ready? Is she ready? For life's new flight. Racing heart, Welled up eyes, That tiny wrist held tight. Pecked, Hugged, " I will be outside " Oops! I just lied. Quiet home, Hushed toys, And so is my appetite. Fidgety, Jittery Couple of hours, Hope all is alright. Tick-tock, tick-tock L

The Lost Letter

Date: 18.05.23 From: Mumbai  To: Delhi  Sent by: an 8 year old To: a 6 year old sister Even after 21 days, the letter has not reached. Is it lost???? Will it reach its destination???? But when???? Summer Holidays After finishing multiplication and division sums one morning, I told my 8 year old to bring her English Workbook to revise 'Writing a Friendly Letter' or what is also called an informal letter. I gave her the  topic- "Write a friendly letter and invite your friend to come and spend her summer vacations with you."  She wrote the letter in her rough notebook. I corrected a few grammatical errors, spellings and punctuation marks and told her to revise the same. Then I went to the kitchen to prepare lunch. After half an hour or so, she came to me with a colourful letter written to her sister (masi's daughter- 6 yrs old) and inviting her to spend summer vacations with her. She said, "Mamma, I would give this letter to her when she comes here. I am keeping

Plants๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿƒ: The symbol of hope, love and care

 Loving the plants and being a Theist comes naturally to anyone. You can't force anyone to love plants or believe in God. But I feel, both plants and God are not at all bothered by one's disbeliefs. They continue to spread their love and care, even if not asked for. On my birthday, two years back, I decided to add greens to my new home. Trip to the nursery nearby, and came home some beautiful Areca palms, Bamboo palms, Crotons, Raphis palm, Dracaenas, Spider plants and lots of colourful seasonal flowers.  A month later, we decided to visit our parents, in another city, for about a week. The only thing bothered me was the upkeep of my lovely plants, but I knew all the species I have will certainly give me a green welcome when I will be  back. (watering the plants when on the go) The destiny had other plans and I contracted Covid there, just 2 days before we had to leave for home. A week-long trip extended to 25 odd days. I had arranged for a water system for my flowering plants
