1. Kipper’s Christmas Eve

2. Katy The Shooting Star

It’s not easy being differently abled in a world that values confirming to norms. The story of Katy the cat is one such instance where a one eyed cat is also one of the best basketball players in history- she just needed to be given a chance to shine. We highly recommend this book as a resource to teach children that they’re very different from each other, and that is absolutely fine.

3. Bang On The door- Two Books In One

This is the only book on the list that is somewhat academic. It primarily aims to teach letters and numbers in a fun and colourful manner. What we love about the book is that it is super bright, very engaging and tries to include as much trivia as possible- perfect to stimulate a child’s curiosity.

6. The Noddy Series

Enid Blyton is the genius behind the creation of this series, replete with many characters and their many moods and temperaments. The fictional toy land is home to this adorable little man Noddy (named after his every nodding head) and all his friends. Each of them has their own quirks and traits that make them unique, much like children.

7. Where The Wild Things Are

This one is not a typical story. It deals with the aspects of childhood anger, and how it is possible to come out and make something creative from all that negative energy. The protagonist Max goes to bed angry, and creates a real forest and all its animals from his imagination. A great read by all means.
