A lot of times the thought of losing my child in a public place crosses my mind. I think the best way to deal with our fears is by addressing them and preparing with action steps.
The book ‘Frank goes to the market’ is really helpful in a lot of ways. It is a story about Frank, a little boy who goes to the market with his mamma and is so engrossed in his visual exploration of the market that he loses sight of his mum.
The book is helpful in
- Building language skills – sentences rhyme which makes my daughter catch the tone of the book and of course learning the names and colors of the vegetables is an added advantage.
- Mentally preparing the child for an Indian fruits and vegetables market scenario – the picture of the auto rickshaw and the mother dressed in a saree add Indian – ness to the illustrations
- In teaching the child what could he/she do if something like this happens – Frank here is a smart guy who traces his mum back to the lime cart cos his mum tell him she wants to buy some lemons to make lime juice for him. Thank God for that 🙂
This one’s not leaving our book shelf for long 🙂
