Synopsis

Sikh Granthi by Kanwaljit Kaur-Singh

In each book of the series, a religious community leader describes his or her work and daily life. They show that they have far more to do than lead services one day a week - for example, teaching, studying, hospital visiting, caring, office work, attending meetings and representing their religious institution in the local community. They are also 'ordinary people', practising their religion for themselves and keeping up with mundane matters like cooking and cleaning. Each book is based on photographs specially taken to show the busy, variety-full life of the person in question. The first-person text leads the reader through the pictures. In describing each leader's life and work, the photos and text also provide a wealth of information about the religion itself. SIKH GRANTHI features Chatar Singh, employed as granthi at the Sikh gurdwara in Southall.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
