English Meets Urdu - Our Debut Series
Our debut book series for children is a set of board books that make it easy parents to teach their children Urdu words without needing to know the Urdu alphabet. The series was developed with Benish Shah and Maryam Ishtiaq with one key reality in mind: not all immigrant and first/second generation parents read Urdu script but they want to teach their children to speak Urdu (and maybe learn something themselves in the process). The series combines English and transliterated Urdu with beautiful illustrations.
Ages: 0-5 years old
I ordered the full set for my kids and a few sets for my friend's kids - these are incredible. The look and feel are so GOOD.
Teaching my daughter Urdu words when I wasn't taught to read Urdu script has been hard. These books made it possible.
I've NEVER found books made for Pakistani kids and I've never been so happy. These books are perfect.
