Lovely book for kids - how we can reuse things
dint waste cloth
it was usefull
he was clever at making things
i gave 3 because of how repetitive it was. from wife to son to daughter to mom. one of the good things is that the story ended with an unexpected ending.the fonts and the presentation of the book were very vibrant and colorful. The pictures matched the paragraphs and made a lot of sense.
i gave this book 3 stars because i thought it is a good idea of telling people recycle clothes and not waste it but some of the parts were repetitive that is why i found it a little boring
i rate this book a 4 only because it was repatative but it was excellent when he recycled one cloth and made it for his family
It inspiring how the author thinks of so many ways to use the turban. I enjoyed reading it as it also connected to my current UOi - sharing the plant in a creative way - it tells us how we can reuse things. The best part is how inspite of limited resources he keeps his family happy and entertained - with a story like this. (Twist in the end)
The book is about a very good tailor and how he transformed a safa/ turban into many other useful items like a dupatta, a kurta, a doll and then a rose – all of them using the same cloth material. I liked it because it was very inspirational and it kept me going. I also liked it because it was very funny, interesting and well written.
Yes, I would recommend this to my friends because it was very entertaining and I am sure everyone who reads it will really really enjoy it too.
