The Author – ‘Kaysee’ lived in a remote village in her early years.The never ending green fields that stretched into the horizon enticed her.Later, she had to move to a town to complete her graduation in science, following which she worked for a few years as a teacher. Her interaction with children grew intense, when she had her own little ones. She had the comfort of watching her children grow up with their cousins & neighbour’s children leisurely. Kaysee’s mother was an intense reader of books .The Author observed her mother read books into the wee hours of the night in the company of a kerosene lamp. She often heard her grandmother admonishing her ‘Mumma’ on the eventuality of a fire breaking out if the lamp topples. It was only natural for Kaysee to inherit the reading habits of her mother. Later she showed interest in writing poetry & then short stories as well. Kaysee observed how small incidents narrated in the simplest of languages would capture the children’s attention & enrich their minds with important lessons & memories. Kaysee does not claim that her work is plentiful but it sure is a ‘thimbleful’ in that direction.
'Thimbleful' is a compilation of short stories for young children who are in the age group of six to twelve years. With the parents' care and pampering, children are often devoid of many worldly anxieties. Every child believes that as long as their parents are with them, they can be worry-free. The worrisome outlook that grownups acquire with age, by & by, is blissfully unaware to them .That makes children more & more endearing to all of us. A beautiful flower, a bewitching colour, an act of kindness, a word of encouragement,all have the ability to leave a lasting impression on the little ones .If we can strive to keep their world as such, Mother nature would be indebted to us forever & ever.The author adheres to this opinion. Let us bring out the hidden rainbow for them! ...Read More
