King for a Day

By I’m Not The Nanny

King for a Day by Rukhsana Khan (Lee and Low) is the perfect children’s book to teach kids about Basant, a spring festival that started as a Hindu celebration but has now crossed religious and cultural boundaries. Illustrator Christiane Krömer makes the kites fly off the with mixed media collages. Not only with children learn about the kite battles of Lahore, the book sneaks in a lesson about kindness to others.
