Fun with fruit: Natasha Sharma's The Good Indian Child’s Guide To Eating Mangoes
HarperCollins India has released The Good Indian Child's Guide to Eating Mangoes by Natasha Sharma. It's the perfect preface to the mango season.
‘Drool-inducing! Rib-tickling! Timely! Generations of Indian children will benefit from this prof-BURR…RRP! (Excuse me, it’s mango season.)’ – Anushka Ravishankar, popular children’s author
Does a plate of mangoes make you:
(a) Want to share or
(b) Gobble it up alone?
The book for goody-ness and mango-ness with a touch of madness!
A book that initiates children into the art of eating India’s favourite fruit while featuring a rather cheeky take on what it means to be a good child. It contains within it an illustrated guide to the different varieties of mangoes and features a fun personality quiz that tells the reader what sort of a mango eater they are. Apt for ages 7 and above, this book is an indispensable part of the mango season and a must-have for fans of the fruit.
What’s the moral of this story?
Moral? Moral! Eat more mangoes and read more books!
