Book Review: My Little Book of Nonsensical Poetry by Tasnima Yasmin

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!

Another great book by the same author.

Among all Ruskin Bond books, The Blue Umbrella has, so far, gathered immense applaud from readers and critics alike.  This is a short novel, but the kind of moral lessons it teaches to us are simply overwhelming.

This is a story of Binya, a poor little girl living with her mother and an elder brother, Bijju, in a small hilly village of Garhwal. One day while herding her two cows back home, she stumbles upon some city people enjoying the picnic in the valley. She is enthralled to see them well-groomed and rich. She craves to be one like them and among many other things of their, a blue frilly umbrella catches her attention. She begins craving for it. On the other hand, the city people get attracted by her innocent beauty and the pendant in her neck. The pendant consists of leopard’s claw – which is considered a mascot widely in the hills. Binya trades her pendant off with the blue umbrella.


The blue umbrella is so much beautiful that soon it becomes a topic of conversation for village…
