"Whether you consider yourself an artist or nor, Child Art with Everyday materials, Vol. 1, is sprinkled with the thoughtful details of Deepa Kamath's design, taps the spontaneous child and the latent artist inherent in each of us. It's inspiring enough to make child and adult alike reach for everyday materials make a minor splash on the daily canvas of life. What could be more wonderful than that?" -- Hindu Newspaper Book Review
