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.
