We can’t stop cooing about the humongous love NutSpace has always shown towards our books. This time, they have introduced The Unboy Boy (written by Richa Jha, illustrated by Gautam Benegal) to this sprightly bunch of children. It brings us much joy to see them so totally engrossed in the book!

That’s not all! Rohini Vij, who runs the show at NutSpace, has sent us this clipping of a dramatised reading of the book:

Rohini, NutSpace, thank you! You rock!

Awards and Recognition Blog

We are excited that The Unboy Boy (written by Richa Jha, illustrated by Gautam Benegal) has been selected alongside some other truly awesome books for this year’s Leading Reading Schools of India Awards (LRSIA) 2017!

 Here is the entire list for this year.

Organised by the inimitable author, educator and story teller par excellence Shamim Padamsee and her Young India Books team, this is the fourth edition of the awards. These annual awards applaud and recognise the five leading schools of India for their exemplary work in instilling a love for reading in their students. On the historic occasion of our 70th year of Independence, this year’s programme lays emphasis on INDIA MERI HAI with the objective of creating sensitive readers and aware citizens who care for our land, its people, environment and heritage.

Don’t miss this lovely, upbeat video “India Meri Hai” conceptualised by Ms Padamsee and produced by her team; its peppy zing will have you humming it all day long! It will be shown at the participating schools and other venues. India’s leading wildlife photographers have contributed to making this an inspirational video. The images in the film can be used for further discussion to sensitise students to our environment.

Scroll to the end of this post to watch the video!
