Book Recommendation - Pustak Na vachnari Mulgi (Girl who doesnot read books) - Marathi Book for kids

Listen 🔊:

Watch 🎥 :


Book Title: Pustak Na Vachnari Mulgi (A girl who doesnot read books)
Published by: Jyotsna Prakashan, Pune
Language: Marathi

Link to purchase this book online : https://jyotsnaprakashan.com/books/marathi/%E0%A4%AC%E0%A4%BE%E0%A4%B2%E0%A4%B8%E0%A4%BE%E0%A4%B9%E0%A4%BF%E0%A4%A4%E0%A5%8D%E0%A4%AF/pustak-na-vachnari-mulgi-jp168

Video for this Book Recommendation:
https://youtu.be/zvmh2sx76TU

This book is a beautiful example of two parallel stories in the same book - one by author and another by illustrator. Totally opposite daily routine of a girl and her parents. Parents are just in love with the books, so much that books are everywhere in the house. And for the girl, books are just obstacles, unnecessary.
What happens next when the heap of books fall on the ground in that girl's room?
