Happy new year!
It’s less than a month away from the release of my bilingual board book, Shubh Raatri Dost / Good Night Friend! Raising a child bilingual/bicultural is wonderfully challenging. I created this board book with families like ours in mind. With the romanized Hindi on each page, both my husband and I can read this book to our child. You don’t need to know Hindi to utilize it.
We received advance copies of this book and it’s absolutely wonderful to see the effect in action. My daughter remembers the names of animals in Hindi better and says shubh raatri regularly.
I will be reading and signing the book at the Books Inc in Palo Alto on February 3rd.
Meanwhile I’m working away on my next graphic novel, Jukebox, and some unannounced projects. It’s going to be a busy and fun year!
I hope to see some of you at my upcoming events!
