Book: Neelu's Big Box
Author: Nandiya Nayar, Illustrator: Sreya Sen
A big box, her grandparents' walking sticks… Neelu has everything she needs for her big, strong fort. But she trips and falls, and the box becomes flat! Whacky pictures take us on a colourful ride into a child's imagination.
Activity: We run a science experiment about what floats and what sinks! We then build 2 different kinds of floating boats with simple materials and make it move with the wind!

“With this box, we learned more STEM. In particular, we explored why do some objects float and some sink? Why does a boat need a sail? How does the wind help the boat move faster? And we read a fun book called Neelu’s Big box about a little girl who dreams up fabulous things with just a cardboard box!”
“During the first few years, unstructured play teaches kids more than we think books do. Wouldn't it be great to combine the idea of book reading and unstructured play!? Nandhini Nayar, the author of 'What Shall I make?' and nine other books with Tulika publishers has created magic yet again with 'Neelu's big box'! This beautiful book is sure to captivate the readers.”
