This week on KSP Book Club,. we are going to talk about a book that’s won our hearts for its sole intention- on how to explain the concept of mixed families to children. Something that’s not much explored in the kids lit field.
Penned by Emilie Anand, a contributor at KSP, this book is a wonderful narration for kids aged 6 and above on the concept of mixed families, why they are different from others, and at the end what binds us all together.
Emilie, who hails from France, has now settled down in Mumbai with her Indian husband and in a mission to explain to her son about the different upbringing styles, the different cultures and habits from his 2 sides, Emilie penned this book- Bandati- in a language that kids will understand.
Narrating the story of Bandati- a mixed Bandar (monkey) + Haathi (elephant), the interesting illustrations and simple narrative drive home the point to kids. Children, being their inquisitive selves, will come up with a barrage of questions when encountered with situations like this, but now thankfully with this book, answering that is going to be a little simpler for parents!
