We’re seeing picture books from a new-to-us publisher and we are very excited with them! Karadi Tales is based in India and their publications include both traditional and newly imagined stories that are readily accessible to an international audience. All have softly colored and highly engaging illustrations. They’re great read-alouds for both groups and as lapsit options. Some are printed on heavy textured stock that will itself engage kids with tactile and kinesthetic needs.
Among the first of these books for which we’ve developed suggested engagement activities is one with a cumulative tale about a smarty rat who tries to keep parlaying his current possession into something larger and grander.
