Rewind to March 2017 when you received the most adorable picture of Baby Zarathustra in your inbox/Whatsapp messenger app. Yes, we are referring to the same viral picture that you couldn’t resist forwarding to everyone on your contact list for Navroz last year.
Parsi Times yet again catches up with the talented Delzin Choksey, who we introduced to you in our Parsi Times issue dated April 1st 2017, as the artist and illustrator of that viral image, and learned that she has even bigger news to share this year!
California-based Zoroastrian entrepreneur, Delzin is excited to share her latest venture, ‘Color and Learn – My First Zoroastrian Coloring Book’ with Zoroastrians the world over. Delzin originally set out on this project as a way to introduce her own daughter Zinaya to Zoroastrianism through an activity that children thoroughly enjoy—colouring. But in time she recognized the need to compile her illustrations into a book and to make it available to every Zoroastrian parent around the world.
‘Color and Learn’ is an eight-page colouring book, that aims to introduce children to our culture and traditions by highlighting basic Zarathushti symbols like the Sagan Ni Ses, Farohar, Atash, etc. Printed on 8” x 11” premium quality paper, the book is great for crayons and holds up well even to water-colours. It provides many hours of fun and encourages our young guns to recognize as well as identify with all things Zoroastrian. This book also makes a fantastic addition to Sunday School programs for young Zarathustis.
Already in its second print run, Delzin’s book is currently a best-seller for her studio ‘Crispy Doodles’, with orders from Zoroastrian Sunday school programs across the United States. The Crispy Doodles online store also features cute frames for Baby Zarathushtra and other gift ideas like personalized inspirational canvases for children’s rooms, an ABC coloring book and her highly popular, Baby Ganesha frames.
