5 Fun & Diverse Illustrated Children's Books for Young and Adults

Books play a vital role in the development of an individual and that is the reason they say 'readers are leaders'. So, the gift of reading is the best gift you can give to your children. I know it can be tough to make them sit and read, but in such case, illustrated books can help you. I have a list of 5 such books that will amuse your kids and entertain you too. So, have a look at these recommendations.

Clouds & Waves by Rabindranath Tagore

This dream-like composition by Tagore is one of the simplest books that profoundly explores a child's imagination and the unbreakable bond between a mother and her child. This poem tells how content and safe children feel with their mothers, and they can refuse extreme appeals for them. It felt incredibly personal and heartwarming.

This is a fun book full of absurd excuses for not doing the homework.
