Book Series: Read And Grow Series by Navneet
Publisher: Navneet Education Limited
Age: 6 months to 3.5 years
About The Series:
There are 16 books in the series available in sets of 4. So in all there are 4 sets A,B,C,D containing 4 books in each.
First two sets, A & B, have about one or two sentences for one illustration per page. Set C has about 2-3 sentences and set D has about 3-4. So, in a way the series in progressive in nature and you should take up reading out them in its order for the maximum benefit.
Navneet’s books are available on first cry and Raj Kart and Amazon too but currently shows out of stock. The best way is to call them up and find out their nearest dealer’s address and go there to pick it up literally.
I have a trunk-ful of memories reading out these books to my then tiny tot.
The first book from the series I read out was Kanji’s Bullock cart (Story: Kanji uncle has set his cart to go to the fair. Two kids ask him, ‘Can we come with you to the fair?’, He says Yes. Next he is asked and says Yes to a peacock, a dog, a turtle, etc. and the cart becomes too heavy. they lose balance and fall on each other, Bullocks get scared and run ahead. They had to walk to the fair on feet. Later Bullocks calm down and they return to the village happily sitting in the cart)
(All stories are this very simple)
It was an instant hit with my LO. I read it again and again for 10 to 15 days before my child let me move on to the next. The same thing got repeated for each of the first 12 books.
It’s impossible to count the number of times ..
- I read out these books
- I told these stories at parks, in autos, in cars, at airports, in trains, at bedtime, at anytime………
- my child cuddled, played, licked, chewed off and tore these books ….
- I taped the torn pages of all these books
- I put my child as well as fellow passengers’ children to sleep telling these stories
