A treasure trove of words is how I would like to describe this book. The author lives up to her word of describing Delhi in 366 words. A wonderful concept which teaches the children about the landmarks, historical places, festivities, places of worship and most importantly about Indian food. It weaves together all the aspects that make this city what it is today.
It draws out the essence of the much said saying Dilwalo ki dilli. The journey of this vibrant city from Dhillu to Delhi is mapped with the right choice of words, interesting phrases, historical facts about languages and places, comprehensible sentences, vocabulary building and beautiful illustrations. The vibrant display of colours catches the eye and children can relate t o so many things in this book.
It is not only a learning experience for them, it is equally handy for us adults too. I would love to take it along to the places I will visit with my children. Reading this childrens book was an experience in its self, I learnt so much about Delhi, things that we never stop to ponder over. The author has gone down to the level of the children and thought like a child while writing this book. She has provided the right kinds of stimuli at the right places to make the child think. In todays world, only a handful of authors are able to do justice to this aspect.
I would recommend this book to every parent who would want their children to experience learning through awareness, an awareness that connects the children to their experiences.
A very thoughtfully written and activity based book that every child would connect to and treasure the learning experiences gained as they read along.

An expertly compiled and edited book guaranteed to keep children of all ages engrossed. Each chapter shines with knowledge imparted through colourful and beautiful illustrations. The book lends knowledge on the smallest of details like parandi, laburnum, toran which I bet leave alone children many adults would also not know.
Relive the excitement of Delhi, with amazing fact files, colourful illustrations and amazing vocabulary. It touches all aspects of Delhi its history, culture, places to visit albeit in an interesting & vivid manner.
A must have for everyone living in and around Delhi. A-Z child centric book which an adult also cannot resist reading. Reading has never been so much fun!
