Grumpopotamus by Manimal Tales: Personalised Book Review

Since the lockdown started, one of the many habits I am working on is improving my reading. In the past four months, I have completed 14 books. The more and more I read, the more I am experiencing the transformative power of books. I have also come to the realisation that good books are one of the greatest investments we can make in our children’s lives!

The Little Girl Who Lost Her Name – Book Review

I am a lover of personalized gifts. I believe it takes any gift to a whole new level. It gives a sense of belonging and adds extra sentiments. That feeling that that gift is exclusively yours is very special and you are urged to preserve it and treasure it for as long as you can!

A couple of months ago, the advertisement for ‘Lost My Name’ books kept showing up on my Facebook page. I found it so unique and intriguing that I got whisked away to their website. Continue reading The Little Girl Who Lost Her Name – Book Review

Egg Carton Craft – The Very Hungry Caterpillar

I saw this craft a long time ago here on my friend’s blog (which, by the way, I recommend you visit for some amazing craft ideas. Vini aka Pooh is a friend of mine from school. She is one of my constant inspirations in blogosphere!). As always, I kept putting this off for later due to the lack of googly eyes and color papers. It was then another crafty friend of mine (you can find her handiwork here) introduced me to Itsy Bitsy – the one stop online store for all arts and crafts products. Their products are so reasonably priced. They offer a wide variety of products and they deliver it super fast. Without wasting time, I placed my first order of googly eyes, craft sticks and pipe cleaners! I picked the color papers from a paper mart in general bazaar!

This is a super fun, easy peasy craft. All you need is – a egg carton, red and green color papers (cut into small pieces), a pair of googly eyes, black pipe cleaners and a glue stick. You can figure out the rest =)


As for the book ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar‘, it is a children’s classic highly recommended for kids aged 1 – 3. Eric Carle, the author of the book, colorfully illustrates the life cycle of a caterpillar. He also beautifully introduces the child to counting and days of the week. I remember reading this book as a child. Now it’s one of KT’s favorite. The paperback imported version of this book is available on Flipkart for just Rs. 150. This craft would be more fun and meaningful once the child has been read this book a couple of times!
