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.
