I am a blogger from India and felt like sharing my children’s bookshelves with you. They love reading and I love reading to them. I’ve been gifted a lovely globe by a friend and it is always handy to point out spots when we’re reading a story about a particular country. I am very particular about tidying up their book racks once a fortnight or so and my husband finds it hilarious that I “waste” a perfectly good Sunday morning doing this. Ironically, he’s begun to devote his Sunday morning to helping me out and enjoys it when the kids discover a long-forgotten book at the bottom of the heap. At which point the three of them take themselves off to the bed to read. I don’t mind continuing to tidy up by myself. It’s worth it to just listen to the three of them murmuring and turning pages.
My children are referred to as the Brat and the Bean on my blog and I’d prefer to keep it that way. My son, known as The Brat is 6 and far from a brat – a gentle, animal-loving, peace-loving child. The excitable Bean is my 4-year-old daughter, who believes that you don’t enter a room so much as make an entrance. We live in Gurgaon (India), part of the NCR or the National Capital Region, that includes National Capital territory of Delhi and its adjoining urban areas.
