Trishla Jain's books shape young minds

George Bernard Shaw mentioned, “Make it a rule never to offer a kid a guide you wouldn't read your self.” But right here lies the predicament—now not all books that a guardian or a grown-up wish to read are of interest to a kid, and vice versa. So, discovering one that may be a satisfaction for each isn’t a very simple job.

However on uncommon occasions we come across a guide that may be as enjoyable a read-aloud experience for parents as it's an entertaining and enlightening read for youngsters. And that’s why ' Om the Gnome and the Chanting Comb' and ' Sunrise, Moonrise ' by way of author Trishla Jain are so much more than just illustrated books for youngsters.

Trishla, a tender mother of two, began meditating at the age of eight and ‘dancing with literature’ at 18. The author who is also a talented artist is encouraged by way of spirituality, and her works—each artwork and literature—are a reflection of her deep-rooted faith. “My books deliver modern spirituality to lifestyles thru easy phrases,” writes Trishla within the author’s observe of 'Om the Gnome and the Chanting Comb '. True to her phrases, the guide combines her love of Indian philosophy with her wisdom of western literature, which she used to be exposed to throughout her days at Stanford University in California where she fell in love with English Literature.

Both the books get started with a problem—in ' Sunrise, Moonrise ' the readers must ‘spot the lotus, the compass and the fish on each and every page’ and in ' Om the Gnome and the Chanting Comb ' Trishla urges children to ‘to find the feather, the mouse and the ladybug on each and every page as you learn to chant OM similar to a sage.’ The mild and magical narration by way of Trishla is fantastically supported by way of the beautiful and lucid illustration by way of Tahirah Powell.

The protagonist of ' Om the Gnome ' is a gnome named Om. The tale weaves round this affable gnome who receives a paranormal comb as a birthday present from his grandmother but little does he know that the brush will be a source of the most important lifestyles lesson. The guide unpacks the magic in the back of the gorgeous sound of ‘Om’ and one of the most traces, “OM untangles all my knots—inside and outside!” is each metaphorical for adults as it's magical for youngsters.

In ' Sunrise, Moonrise ' every page comprises a quatrain, which in combination sums up the journey of the solar and the moon, which they undertake to learn the way other folks from other cultures and faiths pray. This guide, besides being a good way for parents to start a wonderful dialog about prayer and goal with children, will also be the first experience of youngsters to be informed about poetic tactics like rhymes and quatrain. The literary units and their clever execution clearly illustrate Trishla’s expertise within the language and her eye for details. Her phrases in ' Sunrise, Moonrise ' are delivered to lifestyles by way of the interesting illustration by way of Kirstin Eggers.

Also, let’s now not put out of your mind that while the children immerse themselves within the magical world of a gnome and the facility of prayers, they are able to also solve the puzzle every page is plagued by—that's where the magic of the illustrators Tahirah and Kirstin comes to play. That’s what makes a children's guide a contented and engaging read, isn’t it?
