Looking for gift ideas for kids that are not toys? We think books are the answer!
Sona Sharma by Chitra Soundar tells the story of a girl and her family living in India. A gentle, eye-opening book that’s perfect for boys and girls aged 5+.
When Sona discovers she is going to be a big sister for the first time, she’s not sure how to feel about it. She’s always enjoyed being an only child at the centre of her bustling family. She turns to her best friend Elephant for advice and when she learns there will be a baby naming ceremony sets out to find the perfect name for her new sibling.
Short chapters and illustrations throughout make this an ideal book for newly independent readers to enjoy alone. That being said, adults won’t want to miss out on the fun and it’s also great to read aloud together.
