My Green Colouring Book
Practice what you preach is an idiom that everyone is familiar with. But most of the time due to paucity of time or other inconvenience, we often end up preaching and not practising. My Green Colouring Book is an initiative of TERI to introduce young learners to sustainability, who will become responsible and environmentally conscious citizens.
This book introduces children to the natural world around them, which includes plants, animals, birds, and our surroundings. Children are given ample opportunities to learn along with having fun. The fun-filled colouring activities will enhance the motor skills of children.
It is imperative to develop a better fist grip before moving onto developing pincer grip. Our book will help the child to go through a smooth transition thereby practicing:
• Fist grip
• Four-finger grip
• Pincer grip.
