Research shows that early childhood associations with a language have an everlasting impression on the human brain. Thus, these books are designed for parents to read to their pre-school aged children. However, your children will keep coming back to them over and over again because of richness in language and presentation.
So these books can talk to anyone with love for the Punjabi language and heritage. You don’t have to be able to read Punjabi in Gurmukhi script. Romanized Punjabi (written in English) is included. English translations will help enhance understanding or facilitate sharing with non-Punjabi friends.
- Illustrations in vibrant colors will attract young ones and help form an early association with the Punjabi language and the Gurmukhi script.
- Tales are told poetically both in Punjabi and in English. That makes them more fun and easy to remember.
- Gloss laminated board books in child friendly sizes are long-lasting and designed to pass on to many generations.
- Characters and artifacts depict the environs of Punjab.
- Language is simple, communicative and enriching for all ages. Designed to connect many generations together.
- Each tale has a moral and values that are communicated in a fun way.
- Punjabi school teachers will love these resources for Gurmukhi reading and Punjabi vocabulary building.
- Great tools to help organize plays, puppet shows, recitals or to share with your child’s school.
- Activity books are available. See details below.
Printable coloring books with fun games that are engaging and enriching are available free of charge when you buy the books. Please email us a high-res picture or under-1-minute video of your child enjoying these books along with a caption that you want to share on our Gallery Page and we will email you a softcopy.

My name is Gurmeet Kaur and I am a mother of two. My quest for Punjabi language board books for my children began many years ago when my first child was born. I searched for many years but did not find illustrated Punjabi folktales suitable for reading to young ones. So when my daughter turned one last year, I decided to create them myself. After a full year’s worth of work, my illustrator, Susanna Dong and I bring to you these three titles that will delight young and old and bring many generations closer together and to the magical land of Punjab. Please enjoy and share your experiences with us.
Susanna Dong is currently a full-time software engineer at Capital One. After we did the first prototype for my daughter during the summer of 2012, I was convinced that Susanna had the talent and work ethic to take this project forward. She has also developed our website.
I wish to thank all those who have placed a bulk pre-order even before the books took a concrete form. Your trust and confidence has enabled me to go forward with this limited edition.
Thank you, Nirvair Singh for finding joy in editing my Punjabi, Sanmeet Kaur for creating magic with my English translations, Shelby Steinhauer for proofing the punctuation, and Inni Kaur for holding my hand through the process.
Thank you, Gurinder Singh for additional Punjabi proofing.
Thank You, Paul Grosse, for the beautiful Gurmukhi fonts.
And, thank you, Liv Kaur and Angad Singh – for without you, I simply wouldn’t be doing this all.
