Like your sister…
Your eyes were also closed
Your fingers were also curled
Your cheeks were also puffy
Your toes were also tiny.
Sardarni Pushpinder Kaur, Principal, Khalsa School, San Jose, CA writes, "I opened the book this evening. And what a sight it was. The colorful cover was from another planet! The little Sikh boy on the cover tugged at my heart......Inside illustrations are artistic, yet very realistic. I love the picture of the Mom working with yarn, a disappearing art......The description of the naming ceremony adds a nice touch to teaching even the young parents about the significance of this event......This book will make a great gift to second time parents and grandparents expecting a second grandbaby."

Thank You, Vahiguru boasts 40 easy to read beautifully illustrated pages. The book also includes a list of important keywords in Panjabi (with English translations), and information about the Sikh naming ceremony.

Thank You, Vahiguru aims to enlarge celebration of a child’s birth with traditions grounded in Sikhi. Inni Kaur’s gifted articulation really sparks the next generation,” remarked Harinder Singh, SikhRI’s CEO.
