A few months back I had read Silhouette and Other Poems by Tasnima Yasmin. It was a great and contemplative collection. It was much suited for regular readers than kids. Well, but there were a few poems that indicated her orientation towards kids. So, now I finally got a book that is totally for kids of around 4 to 10. I personally love children's literature, as it does not burden one with rules and expectations. You like what you get.
Coming to her new book that is entirely for kids, I loved the book and read it over 5 times in last one month. Even I showed the beautiful pictures put with each poem to kids at my home, they were so engrossed and got excited that I had to take a colour printout of the PDF book for their reading, basically fun.
It’s a short 75 page book, with having 24 very short poems. I must say that the illustrations sketched by Sadia Sultana are simply superb and great. Children stared at them whenever they get time to go through the book. Talking about content - it was witty and funny and of course highly entertaining. I loved all poems - but that Drosophila Melanogaster was a new learning for me. Kids will have great time around the book. They will learn and enjoy it...kids over 5 I think can read the book if parents help them with meaning and some vocabulary.
The collection makes up for perfect bed time content for kids. I loved all poems. I will not give which was my closest favourite. A highly entertaining book for kids! I recommend it to millions of parents and children care takers across the world. Having the book in paperback would be real fun thing to do!
