A huge range of books are published each month globally, but choosing the right one can be a herculean task. Hence, to ease your efforts, our curation panel at Enchantico goes through an extensive curation method and picks the best 2 to 3 books for every age group. These books are a must have in every child’s library and if you wish to add good literature to your child’s life, you can simply subscribe for the box on Enchantico.in. For the month of July, we came up with these 8 best reads + 1 bonus book for children aged 5 to 12. And while you’re at it, our panel is simply busy picking the best reads for the coming months.
The first book for our 7 to 8 year olds will take you back to the Aztec reign. Chantico is a young boy and wishes to be a soothsayer like his Uncle Ahcambal. But, one day a fiery comet appears in the sky and none of the priests are able to explain what it really means. King Moctezuma orders them to be killed. But young Chantico has the gift of second sight and has seen the future in his dream. He comes up with a plan to save his uncle from death. Will he be able to save his uncle? Or will the prophecy be considered false? Presenting Karen Wallace in ‘The Comet of Doom’!
The second book for our 7 to 8 year olds is a series of true stories about five animals who outsmart humans in a really amazing manner. From pick-pocketing parrots and farting fishes to baby-snatching monkeys and so much more, you’ll go bawling over the range of extraordinary antics pulled by these animals. Join in the fun with Nicola Davies in ‘Animals Behaving Badly’, exceptionally illustrated by Adam Stower.
We are giving a bonus third book to our 7 to 8 year olds. It’s about Kittu and guess what? He is lost! The world’s most chaotic family has left him behind at a Dhaba on the highway in the middle of nowhere. He is then rescued by the Ice-creamwala and suddenly Kittu’s horrible day turns from terrible to mad. He is surprised to see a skate-park in the middle of nowhere. The Ice-creamwala’s daughter Mad is crazy about skateboarding and Kittu wants to learn it too… Will the one-legged Kittu who walks on crutches be able to learn skateboarding? Find out with Harshikaa Udasi in ‘Kittu’s Very Mad Day.’
