Do you know why…
By Boski Gupta
Curiosity and knowledge go hand-in-hand. Why is the sky blue? Why does water flow? How are clouds formed? Why do stars twinkle? Why is river water sweet and sea water salty? ‘Why and how’ keep your young minds sharp and your mommies on tenterhooks.
We may not have answers to all your questions but Sudha Murty’s new book can answer one of your queries. How the Sea Became Salty is the first in the series of chapter books by Sudha Murty. The book, narrated simply and endearingly, has gorgeous full colours illustrations making it perfect for introducing young readers to the timeless stories by the author.
This is the story narrated from the times of yore when people were simple and world was peaceful. The intriguing story is roped with simple illustrations and witty sentences to keep younger ones engaged. Though it comes with its own set of moral ending, the narrative is not preachy.
