The Monsoon reading list for kids
Dear moms/dads of the world,
Picture sitting by a window, watching the rains with a pot of freshly brewed coffee and a good book for company. Makes for a perfect activity to do in this season…doesn’t it? Added to that, imagine having to read with/to your child – such a wonderful way to get your child to read and also double up as a bonding activity for both of you.
To help make that happen, we’ve compiled a list of seven books for you and your child to read during the monsoon. Here there are:
