Here’s a list of books par­ents can choose for their chil­dren:

Clumsy (Tu­lika): The story is about a girl with poor mo­tor skills, who is la­belled clumsy, a slow­coach, and care­less, but comes to life when handed a box of paints and a brush. The Jun­gle Sto­ry­telling Fes­ti­val (Tu­lika): How Ostroo, the os­trich who stam­mers, over­comes it to tell his story.

Thukpa for All (Karadi Tales): The power goes off at Tser­ing’s grand­mother’s place at din­ner. They have guests over, but the vi­su­al­ly­im­paired boy hap­pily guides them and even helps his grandma cook, by sniff­ing the spices.

Lit­tle Vi­nayak (Karadi Tales): Lit­tle Vi­nayak’s trunk is longer than ev­ery­one else’s; he keeps tripping on it. But one day, he meets a large ele­phant with a trunk even longer than his. He shows Vi­nayak a spe­cial dance that solves the prob­lem.

The Book­worm (Karadi Tales): Ever the silent one, Se­sha, who stut­ters, is of­ten bul­lied by his class­mates. But ev­ery­one is stunned to see how well he can draw, when the teacher asks him to an­swer a ques­tion.
