If you are planning to raise your child bilingual, then quality books in the language you are planning on is a must! If Hindi is your chosen language then we at IMC are really excited about the amazing book choices out there these days. Here are two really well-made books from T4Tales, founded by Pridhee Kapoor Gupta.

Das Din
Das Di

A board book with flaps to open and tabs to pull is a fun way to learn to count in Hindi. The book has hindi script as well as a transliteration in English for those who are not familiar with the hindi script but know the language. The illustrations by Alicia D’Souza are adorable. A great book to have in your child’s bilingual library!

Gol Mol Bol

Gol Mol Bol

A book of familiar Hindi nursery rhymes from our childhood. This book has the poems in Hindi script as well as a transliteration like the board book.The book comes with music by Ramya Shankar, available for download. This was a lot of fun for us! It was my daughter’s first exposure to nursery rhymes in Hindi.

My 6 yr old recognized Akkad, Bakkad Bumbe Bo which I had taught her to play with her fingers, a game I used to play as a child. Games that needed nothing but our fingers and a song! The book helped me remember and share a few more rhymes that I had learnt  as a child, with my daughter. We also learnt some new ones! Especially the Machali poem that also could be a message about letting someone thrive in their natural environment. Such beautiful poems that are a part of our heritage. A lovely addition to round out your library with rhymes in Hindi!
