Speaking at the book launch, Pallavi Utagi, Founder, SuperBottoms, said, “SuperBottoms as a brand is built on values like Honesty & Sustainability. It’s equally important to instill right values and positive habits that will shape children’s personality during their early growing years as much as them learning their ABCs and their 123s.
