Round Up

This time, it's a publishing special edition of round-up.

First Book is a nonprofit organization with a single mission: to give children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books. We provide an ongoing supply of new books to children participating in community-based mentoring, tutoring, and family literacy programs.

Story Revolution has an excellent list of general Indian publishing resources as well as Indian book publishers and sellers. Books mark this one. Our picks are:
  • The Open Library Blog -- by Usha Mukunda, a librarian and teacher with a passion for children’s books.
  • Arvind Gupta's website -- an amazing resource! lots of lovely books for download, including many Newbery award books. Also, educational books, toys and films.
  • Sutradhar, Bangalore-- "Sutradhar brings together imaginative learning resources for young children under one roof."
  • Eklavya, Bhopal -- publishes " children’s literature, activity books, lesson modules, teaching aids, educational classics, resource books for teachers, reports and compilations of studies etc. While the majority of these titles are in Hindi, there are also titles in English and other Indian languages."
