101 Children's Book We Love

Dear Fellow Booklovers,   

We are in the process of putting together a guide to the best Indian children’s books…. and we would like to hear from you!
101 Indian Children’s Books We Love seeks suggestions and contributions from children, parents, teachers, grandparents, librarians, resource people and book lovers. If there’s an Indian book that you think is a must-read, this is your chance to tell everyone about it. You can chose up to three titles.

Your entry must include:

Name of book

Author’s name

Illustrator’s name

Publisher’s name and date of publication

A short review of 100-150 words (you can be as enthusiastic as you want!!)

Your name & email ID

If you’re at school, the name of your school and your class

* The best reviews will be printed in the book.

All books must be available (in print) in English in India. Translations from other languages into English as well as bi-lingual books can be included. Please note that the books must be published in India - and not imported
The guide will cover books for a wide age range – from baby’s first picture books to young adult fiction – and will include non-fiction and poetry as well as fiction titles. There will be a section for special format books, including Braille, audio books and touch-and-feel. We will not include textbooks. So, pick your favourite book/s and send in your entries to: 
The deadline for receiving entries is August 1, 2010.

  1. This would be a very cool list I would love to see. I personally have only read a handful of Indian literature and it's all in the vein of adult fiction. I would certainly enjoying seeing some Indian Children's lit and sharing it with my kids.

    Best of luck on the guide. I look forward to seeing the finished product. :)
