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 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.

Poem Summary: Where The Mind Is Without Fear by Rabindranath Tagore

Poem by Rabindranath Tagore: Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high Where knowledge is free Where the world has not been broken up into fragments By narrow domestic walls Where words come out from the depth of truth Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit Where the mind is led forward by thee Into ever-widening thought and action Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake. Short Summary: This poem is written by Rabindranath Tagore during pre-independence days, when India was a colony of the British. The underlying theme of the poem is absolute freedom; the poet wants the citizens of his country to be living in a free state. According to the poem, we see that the poet is expressing his views there should be a country, like where people live without any sort of fear and with pure dignity…they should

Book Review: The Blue Umbrella by Ruskin Bond

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 fo

Poem Summary: Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Ozymandias is a short poem of fourteen lines written by Percy Bysshe Shelley. The concurrent theme of the poem is that nothing remains intact and same forever in this world. Even the brightest of metal, one day decays with passage of time. The throne name of Egyptian King Ramesses is Ozymandias. It was his dearest desire to preserve himself forever by building a huge statue that he thought would never tumble down. Stanza 1: I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand, Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed; Summary: The poet narrates the poem through the eyes of a traveler who seems to have come back from a remote and far-away land, referring to Egypt. The traveler r
