I grew up as an army kid and was all over India , enjoyed my life but could not join the Army as I had specs ! This book though written for children is nostalgic for any parent who has had a "Fauji kids life" - and beautifully captures the story for our children .
Puffin books bring a series of books on “Our Amazing Armed Forces” authored by Arthy Muthanna Singh and Mamta Nainy. The books focus on the people and their families whose acts of heroism make the armed forces exemplary.
“My Father is in the INDIAN ARMY” is the story of Beena and her Dad, who is in the Indian Army. It gives the reader a peek on the life of Army kids. Living in cantonment with and at times without the father, who goes on classified missions.
The book further elaborated on quick facts, acronyms used, rank structure and awards presented in serving. A brief on a day in the life of cadet at NDA is given in simple words for kids.
The book is appropriate for kids above 6 years encouraging them to know about the Indian Armed Forces.
A perfect independence day read for your kid. The book describes the lives of people in Indian army. The books vividly portrays how the family members coup up the frequent postings, change of place , schools. The book illustrates the bond between the kids and a close relative who works with the armed forces. I loved the illustrations. The book also gives you an idea of the rankings, the work area as well. Suited for ages 6 And above .
It is the perfect book to introduce to young children about the lives of Indian Army Personnels. It is not easy for the family members of Army Personnels to stay alone when their father, brother or husband are at the border fighting for our country. We should be proud of all the Army Personnels, it is because of them we are safe. I salute the Indian Army for their innumerable sacrifices. I love this book. Very well written.
My Father is in the Indian Army is a great way to introduce our children to Indian Defence as the book was full of facts and figures and a short story to keep the little ones interested. My daughter loved reading them and what followed after were the stories we grew up hearing from our Grandparents.
Those who had parent in Armed Forces can easily relate to this book, it is a beautiful read and brings nostaligia, there are three books in this series and I enjoyed reading them all. Kudos to the author Arthy Muthanna Singh & Mamta Nainy for penning it down
