Nabiya (Malayalam)

Author : Chatura Rao
Illustrator : Ruchi Mhasane

It is hard not to notice Nabiya in English story classes. She listens so hard that she hardly blinks! Slowly, she begins to explore stories, delight in their words, pictures and funny moments. This story about a spirited young girl, who likes football as much as she likes storybooks that she is determined to learn to read. Using a collage of colours, textures and drawings, the illustrations evoke Nabiya's everyday world in a small room on a crowded Mumbai street and her journey into the world of words. NCERT recommended

Here is where Nabiya scores - it leaves enough trails for a newbie to discover that there is a lot in the world of books to discover and to immerse into it... Illustrations shine through out... A lovely book with introduces us to the possibilities of where Indian picture books can go. Saffron Tree
