… (other than this blog post 😉 ) make it one of the articles in the latest issue of Paper Tigers, which focuses on children’s literature from India and the Indian diaspora.
Paper Tigers is a tremendously valuable and exciting website which embraces multicultural books in English for young readers. It is full of resources for parents, teachers, readers, librarians – anyone interested in children’s books, especially (but not only) those from the Pacific Rim and South Asia. Every two months a new issue is released on a different topic – and the most recent topic encompasses everything to do with Indian children’s literature.
You might learn something new in this article about Bengali children’s writers, or be tempted by some of the poetry collections reviewed here. I know my girls and I have loved looking at the illustrations from Bhajju Shyam and I’m sure you will too. There’s lots to explore, learn and enjoy!
You shouldn’t miss the Paper Tigers Blog either, and a favourite recent discovery of mine – a monthly calendar of (children’s) literature events around the world.
Now I’m off to find our copy of My Mother’s Sari and re-read it with the girls!
