Oprah Winfrey, the world-famous US talk host who gifted a trunkful of her favorite children’s books to Beyonce’s new baby, Blue Ivy. In this trunk are books that Oprah has loved all her life, and has encouraged her own children to read and pass on. She didn’t send the baby a gold necklace; she didn’t send her a set of expensive toys. She sent the baby what she knows is the very best treasure of all: stories!
A treasure beyond compare
Books are gifts that entertain and enlighten. They also guide our children to do the right thing when we’re no longer around to guide them. Most people love books; and those who don’t read books, love to hear stories from the ones who do. Even those people, who never learnt to read, eagerly watch theatrical depictions of their favorite stories. Knowledge finds a way to become known, one way or the other.
Gift your child the pleasure of reading
When your son’s or daughter’s birthday comes around this year, get a gift voucher from Flipkart.com, Oxford Book Store, Sapna Book Store or Landmark from Woohoo.in.

Plus the shopping, will be surely be, a fun day-out for the parent and the child!!
