Our editor Mala Kumar shares a post about the little (and not so little) women in our books :
At Pratham Books, we love children – and that you already know! We love the women who allow kids to be kids in our books a lot too. Like the mother who encourages her kids to paint the gate in Little Painters, or the grandmother who gets her grandson to discover joy in Aaloo-Maloo-Kaaloo.
Storybooks leave strong impressions on young readers’ minds. We do believe it is good to feature strong, warm, loving, independent-minded characters in our books to reinforce positive attitudes. And that is why it was a pleasure to publish the biography of Kasturba Gandhi, We call her Ba.
We’d be delighted to hear about the the women characters in books who have inspired you! Do write in. And have a Happy Women’s Day!
