Each child is magical being but somewhere along the way some of that magic wears of, and our imagination gets limited due to the working knowledge of the world. But this book is an attempt at capturing the innocent, unperturbed, and yet nascent mind of my daughter.

Each of the letters in the book tries to capture the essence of her experience during the given week or month and is a take on what a baby might think as they try to adapt into an alien world. My apologies if my personal struggle, while trying to keep up with her, trickles into any of the letters. But I am sure that any first year parent would appreciate my creative venting mechanism.

If you are a first year parent then I hope that this book encourages you abandon all signs of adulthood and join in on one of your kid’s adventures. And if you are a veteran, then my hope is that you would relive some of the magic through this book.

If you are planning on having a kid then this book may not be the best place to derive motivation. That being said if you are willing to read into the humor and pardon any sarcasm you would definitely get glimpses into the rewarding journey of a parent.

About the Author

Ankit is your average Dad taking hearty support from a belabored wife and superstar mom to make extrapolated claims of being the perfect spouse and father. He fails more often than he would like to admit and still gets rewarded by his loving wife and vivacious daughter much more than he should!

He continues to jot down his ‘Encounters of the First Kind’ and would hopefully roll them into another book soon.

Re: Close Encounters of the First Kind

Its been such a special journey going through the letters of this little mischievious Kid Prisha , I would say that this book takes you in the wonderland of what a kid thinks or should i say might be thinking going through her phases ranging from 1 month to 2,3 so on. Hatts off to the writer for pointing out smidgen of the little princess prisha's minds, what would the outer world be for them , loved the sarcasm too of the baby girl taking the commanding position every now and then hahaha !!!
I would suggest everybody to go through this book to relive your childhood through Prisha's Eyes
Thanks :)
