£11.99

Tsering can't wait to taste his grandmother's delicious noodle soup. He invites a string of friends and neighbours home. But as preparations get underway, there is a power cut and the house is plunged into darkness. Will Abi be able to put together the much-anticipated thukpa? Told from a blind child's perspective, this tale by Praba Ram and Sheela Preuitt is accompanied by Shilpa Ranade's stunning illustrations. Thukpa for All is featured on the IBBY List of Outstanding Books for Young People with Disabilities (2019) and in the Outstanding International Books list (2020) by the United States Board on Books for Young People (USBBY). Review This is a heartwarming story of community and the gifts that each person possesses. Recommended for ages 4 - 8.--The Barefoot Mommy

Told from the unique perspective of a child who is visually impaired, Thukpa for All is a beautiful story about community, compassion, and culture. Praba Ram and Sheila Preuitt do an extraordinary job of allowing the reader to envision what it must be like to have limited sight. The duo describe so eloquently how Tsering uses his senses to guide him and identify familiar sounds, scents, and textures. They put his character on display, portraying him as a confident, capable, and outgoing child who has concern for those around him. Additionally, they weave cultural terms, rhyme, and alliteration into this sweet story...The illustrations throughout it, as well as on the cover, are detailed and alluring. They shine with vibrancy, and their bright colors bring the Indian culture to life, making this a perfect pick for young children interested in learning about this unique country.--Manhattan Book Review
