Day 13 : Wonder wheels

          Children are fascinated with whichever thing that moves be it a train, a toy or a bus. I remember whenever we used to go on long journeys to my native place by bus or train, I would be dozing off to sleep by occupying the most-prized possession - the window seat! And then, when my sister came along, I cannot the forget the silly fights we used to have over who will take the window first. Ultimately, my mother decided that she will be tossing a coin for us. So, we used to ask her the duration of the journey and calculate accordingly how much time will one get at the window!

          Coming back to our challenge, we received a prompt - wonder wheels! We had to read books on modes of transport! This topic is not covered extensively with Swara simply because we have travelled only by plane and car till now. Guess, it's time to take her on a train journey!

          So, mommies, fasten your seat belts and get ready to experience the exciting reading journey! Bon Voyage!
