The Churki-Burki Book of Rhyme

KS1: ages 5-7Book

Churki and Burki are two sisters who lead a happy, busy life in their village with their family. They spend the day fishing in the river, driving the parrots from the corn field, harvesting fruit and vegetables, and enjoying the outdoors.

This book captures the experience of growing up as a girl in a tribal village in central India. It is beautifully illustrated by the Gond artist Durga Bai, based on her own childhood in the village of Patangahr.
