Board books are best for babies, and babies love rhymes. The two come together in these easy to hold, tough to tear books, with the fun and flavours of favourite Indian rhymes adapted into English. Along with the bright, bold visuals in distinct styles, designed to hold the attention of little ones – one-month-old to nursery-going – the lively rhythms make for a cheery interactive experience.
By looking at pictures and absorbing their details, early learners develop the basic skills required for reading and for later enjoying the nuances of language. Tulika’s growing list of picture books has several series within it built around concepts, themes, genres and characters. Diverse and engaging visual styles and texts come together to offer an enriching reading experience.
In response to the needs of children growing up in a multilingual society, these books provide access to two languages at a time – Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Telugu, Marathi, Gujarati or Bengali, paired with English. The text is deliberately simple to allow the two languages on the page to be as close as possible to each other, so one can be followed through the other.
Our select list of paperbacks has contemporary novellas, adventure stories, teenage diaries, fantasy, historical fiction, graphic novels, anthologies and literary nonsense verse, spanning a range of styles, formats and themes.
Slices of history, flavours of places, explorations of art, perspectives on people, events and the environment… an array of non-fiction served up in exciting ways, put together by established and new writers, activists, thinkers, environmentalists, artists, archaeologists, teachers…
While colouring books are the new buzz in publishing, Tulika came out with its series as far back as 1997! Popular from the start, the existing books have been into several reprints. More are on the anvil – imaginative, out-of-the-box concepts spanning fiction as well as non-fiction. So watch this space!
