My latest series of books for the newly independent readers – Nikhil and Jay are very special to me. They are inspired by my own family and our blended heritages. The series is illustrated by Soofiya and published by Otter Barry books.
I will be talking to Nikki Gamble of Exploring Children’s Literature about how this series came about and why. I will reveal secrets and inspirations behind each of the stories in these two titles and show parents, teachers and librarians how to expand the reading with fun resources and activities.
You’re invited to this event! It’s free and fun and online. Come and listen to us chat about how children of blended heritages, especially Anglo-Indian is never featured in books for these ages and how these stories help children understand and explore with their dual heritages.
