In the august presence of singer Usha Uthup, writer Shubhra Shah Agarwal, Vimla Subaya (ex-Principal, La Martiniere For Girls’), Jessica Gomes Surana, Laura Amalir and others, the book Leatherback’s Big Win was released.
The book Leatherback’s Big Win is the story of a mother-daughter duo narrated by a tortoise. It has powerful messages which every parent would want their children to read. Written in lucid English, the book has eighteen illustrations done by Anisha Agarwal (the writer’s daughter). The illustrations are to be colored by the reader. There are also puzzles and activities at the end of the book so as to encourage the readers in solving them and for increasing their comprehension.
Speaking at the launch, the writer said “Children also have a sense of humor and this must be realized by the parents. I have understood that they read stories which are narrated by animal characters. Hence the tortoise has been selected to narrate this story. The illustrations are vivid and the kids will love them”.
Usha Uthup who was present at the occasion said “Shubhra and her daughter have worked together in the book. This is indeed a good way of bonding with your kids. Making your child read can only be done when you also read. They get encouraged when they see you to read”.
The book is readily available at The Oxford Book Store in Kolkata and also on amazon.com. Grab your copy now!!
