In every way, the Tales for Tweens book is absolutely beautiful - from the selection of the stories, the language used, the conceptualization of the characters, the illustrations and indeed - the thought behind the book!
Namrata Bhagtani-Sadhvani, Parent
Tales For Tweens particularly gives us an amazing example of inclusive approaches, resources and materials; and all that it needs is more conversations, more open discussions, and the thought to take that step!
Gokul Kumar, Outreach & Admissions, Plaksha Technology Leaders Program
An absolute gem. The explanations and the additional resources that the book provides is gold. It's a great tool for teachers to use in their classrooms to discuss concepts that are difficult for younger students to grasp. I wish I had such books in my school. Absolutely will recommend!
