Children’s Book Feature: CARROT SOUP by Sadaf Hussain


Yummy Soup and Tender Loving Care are a Sure Cure! Niyogi Books launched its second Children’s book under its imprint Perky Parrot, titled Carrot Soup by Sadaf Hussain. This is a heart-warming story about helping your family and loved ones. The book helps children (and parents) understand that tasks like housework are not gender specific, thus subtly conveying the message that both boys and girls can cook and do domestic chores. The book also conveys positive messages about teamwork, caring and sharing and contains Pankaj Saikia’s expressive illustrations and fun activities which make the book attractive for little readers. A feature by columnist Riccha Grrover for Asian Lite International.
