Indian language books translated in Hindi for the young readers

The set of 10 books by Katha is a nice clutch of stories for the young reader. They are translations and adaptations from various Indian languages.

A short story by Bibhuti Bhusan Bandopadhyay titled Padak forms a part of the repertoire.

There aren’t too many sentences on a single page and they make perfect read alouds. Kokila ki mast matka is a lovely yellow book with a cheeky cat and a grinning pot on a stand gracing the cover. Take a look and it’s easy to see why you might want it immediately. Check out naughty monkey Mitji swinging from his tree and bothering everyone.

Jalebiya gives you a taste of what these syrupy golden rings can do you. They can make your eyes round and your mouth water.

The drawings are the highpoint of the stories. Carefully illustrated, they make each story come alive.
