“Exposing children to a range of children’s literature for independent reading, shared reading as well as read aloud is critical for children to develop sustained literacy skills as well as develop critical thinking, imagination and creativity.” Accordingly, the National Council of Educational Research and Training  drew up a suggestive list of select children’s books as a guide to libraries, schools, NGOs, parents, State Boards and other organisations, which includes several English and Hindi titles from Tulika.
