50 Craft Ideas for kids to celebrate India’s Republic Day
We the Children of India – The Preamble to our Constitution
As part of the history of India, we learn about post-independence history, and that includes learning about the constitution – one that came into effect on 26th January 1950, when independent India became a republic.
Leila Seth, a former judge of the Supreme Court, has come up with this fabulous book that simplifies these ideas without talking down to children, and also making them interesting enough to stick. Told in verse form, with a large dollop of humour, this is the perfect book to talk about India’s constitution, for all ages above 5 years. Adults, too.
