South Asian Kidlit

South Asia is a large and diverse region made of the following countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and the region of Tibet. This area has a diverse array of languages and religions while remaining connected through art, dance, food, histories, and traditions.

Today’s South Asian children’s literature reflects this culture not only in folktale and historical stories but also in the modern day and into fantasy worlds as well.  Check-out the South Asian Kidlit Round-Up posts for wonderful new books.
