The book is presented well and the chapters are extremely informative. The author has briefly described that digital revolution is the need of the hour. It suggests various ways to build connections through classroom teaching by adding a WOW Factor. The book throws light on several types of Digital Content. An educator can take tips on how to use the innumerable social media platforms constructively. Google’s role in education has been highlighted here, It opens up a spectrum of ideas a teacher can choose from while planning the session.

As an educator, this book helped me tap the unexplored areas of Google. It also presented the digital contents in a structured manner. I wish the author could have explained the rest of the digital content in detail. Building connections is a chapter I could connect with personally, and truly said “Building connections is one skill every teacher must develop

The E-book itself is a part of digital content, and it has set the path for a journey every teacher must tread on. It is time to change and invest in the right kind of devices to facilitate education using digital and WOW tools.

Book Review of Hats, Hoods and Humiliation by Hiranya Verma

Name of the book: Hats, Hoods and Humiliation

Author: Hiranya Verma

Released on: 5 May 2020

Genre: Self-help E-book, Children and Young Adult

Cover design: Hiranya Verma

Illustrations : Hiranya Verma and Vidhu Bhatnagar

Book Blurb: This is a book to help those young children struggling to realise or let go their humiliation in their past or present lives. This book has easy to follow step wise simple techniques to handle everyday emotions. Designed for young kids by one of their own, this book is a good and easy read for anyone.

About the author: Hiranya Verma is a ten year old girl, studying in Kochi. She was born in Mumbai on 25 June 2009 and her parents are Dr. Vidhu Bhatnagar and Dr. Rohit Verma. She has an elder brother, Kaustubh, with whom she shares a brilliant equation. Her hobbies are drawing, painting, reading and writing. She also plays the keyboard.

Hats, Hoods and Humiliations is an E-book that strikes a chord with the reader. It is a self-help book that discusses various emotions and people a child has to deal with during the wonderful period called childhood (also pre-teen). The book has a strong introduction that sets the right tone for the reader to understand that this book is a must-read. Each chapter delivers its best and “Points to Ponder” will make you pensive. There is a Little Quiz at the end of the book that weaves the whole idea of the book together.

Hats, Hoods and Humiliation gives life lessons. Childhood is described from the eyes of a ten year old, her thoughts, her feelings and hands down some amazing suggestions in the bargain. The author narrates relatable real-life instances. These anecdotes are a guiding light with apt suggestions on how to handle humiliation, self-pity, bullies, guilt, siblings, friends, apologizing and much more. My favourite is Ms. She-Godzilla. ( You need to read the book to know more). The talk on Secret personality requires a mention. At the age of 10, the author has read the people around her so well that this subject has crept its way here. I particularly appreciate the use of the word little throughout the book, sometimes it is used to tone down the seriousness of the phrase, like in the title of Chapter 5: A Little Bit of Bad and A Lot of Good, a little scolding and this bothersome little sensation from other chapters. The toning down helps children understand that these are little things in life and can be handled. It gives the book a positive aura.

I personally liked Hats, Hoods and Humiliation, it took me back in time. The write-up on Affirmations is my take-away from this book. Hats, Hoods and Humiliation should be at all school libraries, with a must-read tag. Parents and teachers too, must read it in order to understand certain situations. In fact, an adult too, can benefit a great deal from it. The author has done an excellent job by expressing her thoughts in simple words. The Cover design and illustrations add immense value to the book. They are created by the author and Vidhu Bhatnagar. I recommend Hats, Hoods and Humiliation by Hiranya Verma. It will make a difference in your path ahead in life. Also Hiranya loves the experience called life.

The book has 25 chapters and each chapter is filled with an elaborate explanation about what could be the reason of the occurrence of the dream. Small details in each dream has been interpreted well, and it can be understood, thanks to the simple language used here.

I personally enjoyed reading the book. Dreams are the visual images of our understanding of a certain situation. The book decoded many situations that I have experienced in my dreams. The book being scientific in nature has taken care to explain dreams in a simple and unique way. The interpretation of various birds is very interesting.

The book discusses problem-solving with the interpretation of a dream. It gives suggestions like a self-help book to see through the dreams to improve the quality of your present life situation.

The books has touched upon relevant day-today issues, however it would benefit from a tighter editing. Readers would relate to most of the situations mentioned in the book.

Overall the book is a excellent, informative read. It allows one to understand different situations better. Downlaod your copy here: https://www.theblogchatter.com/download/dreams-decoded-by-ujjwal-mishra/
