Encourage the talent of little kids needs a good heart and selfless talent. Samata Dey, through her blog IndiaCafe conducted a short story/ poetry competition for little kids. She has collated them and published a book.
Thus came Lockdown Kaleidoscope.
The talent of little kids is incredible. Readers get to see some breathtaking pieces of literature. The perspective these kids have at such a young age, surprised me.
The effort taken in collecting them and professionally putting them together is commendable. The professional look itself is the highlight of the book.
While we are miffed about the poor editing of many so-called best sellers, the editor of this book has nailed it.
Overall it is a collection of cute and mature pieces of literature by little writers.
