We are so thrilled and honoured to see our MACHHER JHOL on the inaugural Parag Honour List 2020! Our heartiest congratulations to the book’s author Richa Jha, illustrator Sumanta Dey and designer Abhishek Jha. Parag, thank you!
Parag Honour List is a curated collection of outstanding books in English and Hindi for children and young adults by Parag Initiative of Tata Trusts. This list, published annually, comprises noteworthy books of the year with brief information about each title. It has been created with careful screening and multiple reviews by experts in the children’s literature sector. The list aims to promote access to a comprehensive, curated list of good quality children’s literature that librarians, teachers, parents, and children can refer to and read. With large number of books being published each year, it is hoped that Honour’s list will support the process of curation for users.
Parag Honour List was first launched in January 2020 at the New Delhi World Book Fair. We received books from 25+ publishers on various themes for the age group 0-16 years. The books comprised of original writings in the category of picture books, young readers and young adults, both in fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
