The Goodbooks website is a repository for Indian children’s books and provides a space to all those engaged with children to enter the fascinating discourse on children’s literature. It is where educators, parents, librarians and research scholars get an overview of children’s literature in India, and an update of books being published across the country. The reviews on the site critically evaluate books, enhancing the understanding of what constitutes good children’s books and creating awareness about the role of books and reading in a child’s life.
