About the Book:

As parents, we want to give all that is best to our kids, both tangible and intangible, from education to things of daily need. We want the best for them. But, as they say, ‘it is not always the presents they want, but you to be present with them’. Because what a parent can teach a child, probably no one can. The attitude of gratitude is one such crucial social skill we ought to impart from an early age. Often, we just instruct them to say thank you, welcome,"  etc., but it ends up being a ritual for them rather than them understanding the real implications. 'It's Time to Say Thank You' book is truly an Indian book that takes charge to make our little ones be thankful for whatever they have, and also to engage them with fun activities inside. 



Radhika: Congratulations! How are you feeling about becoming a first-time author?

Author Yogita: First of all, thank you so much for giving me this opportunity and inviting me here, to share my thoughts. To be honest, I am very happy and nervous at the same time. I am sure you can feel me. 



Radhika: What motivated you to write a children's book?

Author Yogita: I feel the msg that I have in the book is very special and everyone needs to consider that in their life. I want to spread that, especially for the little ones because most of them are blessed with everything in their life, and still, they cry for a new thing every day.

Radhika: Did you face any challenges during the writing process? How did you overcome them? 

Author Yogita: Umm… writing this was not a challenge but to make this song rhymic was little. I used to sing this song to get the best version of it & even I sing this daily for my daughter as a night-time song. 

 Radhika: How did you decide on the illustrations for your book?

Author Yogita: For designing, I trusted Dr. Sai Kaustuv Dasgupta, The wheelchair Warrior in India, and he did amazing work. 

I worked hard to choose activities and more & Sai have them the shape.


Radhika: Please elaborate on how parents and teachers can use the book to its fullest.

Author Yogita: Thank you for asking this. First thing first, if you have money and you are buying this because your kid wants that don't buy it. Because trust me, they will open this once or twice but as conscious parents, you need to encourage your child to read that book or sing that song for your little ones, even for the newborn.

Discuss things like, for example - 

I am thankful for your good grades.

Or maybe mumma is happy because you finished your lunch.

When you will show this gratitude, they will also start considering the small things that are there and valuable. 

You can ask them – why are they thankful today and listen carefully to their answers or help to give one answer. 


In short - Actively engage your child with the blessings he/she had in their life.


“Gratitude simply means "Be thankful for what we have". We are blessed with abundance in life, but are we valuing that? Thus, are we also teaching our kids the same thing?

Being a parent, I want my child to learn the power of Gratitude. This book by the author,  Yogita Aggarwal helps in defining the same term with great illustrations and conveying a great message to our kids.

This book is a requirement if you want to teach kids the value of things. Additionally, this book offers several fun activities for kids. Highly advised for children between the ages of 4 and 10 years."

  4. Such a detailed review. Yes I to agree and encourage to make kids of this generation aware about the values, gratitude, being kind and helpful.

    Your detailed review made me think about reading and gifting this to my know ones in my circle who is in this younger generation group.

  5. I like the title 'It's Time to Say Thank You'. It reminded me of the time i was forced to say, thank you, sorry, and good evening to people without knowing why I was expected to say them. Many Indian parents are guilty of forcing these words on the kids ips without even giving a logical reason.
