JANICE GOES TO CHINATOWN

ABOUT THE BOOK

Janice sets off to Kolkata’s Chinatown along with her grandmother. Join her as she discovers this heritage district.

SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • A sweet and simple story about a little girl on an outing with her grandmother.
  • Readers will enjoy selected sights and sounds of Kolkata’s Chinatown district and get a glimpse into the lives and culture of the people who live there.
  • Pastel-hued illustrations capture the vibrancy and street life of Chinatown perfectly.
  • This book is free to read, download, print and repurpose from Storyweaver.org.in in multiple Indian languages.
  • Lanterns, incense, dumpling soup, mahjong — while all these may be typical of this iconic Chinese district in Kolkata, the book still leaves you feeling that it could have been a lot more.

CONCLUSION

A book to be enjoyed with a child or a grandchild, but which leaves you wishing the journey into a less-explored part of Kolkata could have been more meaningful.

“For a teacher or librarian faced with dozens of books to read, a good book review website is as essential as maps are for geographers.”

“Indian children’s books rarely get the kind of publicity they deserve in the popular or social media. Websites like Goodbooks plug the gap by not letting a single Indian children’s book of merit slip through the cracks. Most people would not even know about the books available in the market if not for a resource like this.”
