About The Book Sit Still
If your little one is always fluttering about, jumping, fidgeting and never in one place for too long – then this books will have an immediate connect. The protagonist is a little girl named Viji. She is fearless, and as the title of the book states, she can never ‘Sit Still.’ This behaviour is often a bone of contention with those around her. Nothing seems to contain her boundless energy.
