We have been reading this book since they were toddlers,over and over and over again….that thing with kids where they pick the same book from shelf ,for like a month or so…..and are always excited….in fact this is our second copy.We LOVE this book.Alhumdulillah.
The living books approach is soo amazing and children retain so much if they like the content(or may be its about the attitude a parent/teacher shows that makes all the difference). While dealing with living books the parent lets the child connect to the author with out much interference.These may not exactly qualify for living books …but its somewhere there…. I think we need more authors and books which dont just provide information but help in creating that love with the subject.
For seerah we do very informal style narrations ,some days we just talk and some days we do scrapbook style cut and paste activities.
