Nidhi Chanani (The Children's Book Podcast #501)

April 9, 2019

SHUBH RAATRI DOST/GOOD NIGHT FRIEND 

 

Nidhi Chanani (@nidhiart) shares SHUBH RAATRI DOST/GOOD NIGHT FRIEND, a new board book in which two children say goodnight in both Hindi and English to all of the animals in their Indian farm home. There’s an intimacy to sharing this moment with the characters in the book, as the sun goes down and as each goodnight offered is accompanied by thankfulness to what gift the object has given the children. Nidhi shares at one moment in our conversation the sentiment that caring for one another can look like sharing with someone or something and noticing when they are sharing with you. 

 

Thank you to this week's sponsors:

ABOUT THE BOOK: 

As day turns to night, follow Bhai (brother) and Behan (sister) in their Indian farm home while they bid their animal friends a good night. Children will love this sweet sleep tale that builds their Hindi and English vocabulary. Every page includes Hindi language script, Romanized Hindi, and English language, which makes each language accessible to your whole family. Written and Illustrated by Nidhi Chanani, author of PASHMINA and illustrator of the forthcoming I WILL BE FIERCE, this board book is an essential addition to a diverse library.
