“Anisha’s Adventures In Bangladesh” by Moinul Islam, beautifully illustrated by Calvin Innes and published by My Little Big Town is a book aimed at children 5+. My daugheters who are 2 & 7 and they both enjoyed reading / listening to this story a lot.
The older one has quite a few Bangladeshi friends at school but if you ask her what she knows about their country she wouldn’t be able to say much. That is why I thought this book may be very helpful in understanding their culture and I was right, on the way even learnt few facts myself. “Anisha’s Adventures in Bangladesh” is not only fun but also educational at the same time book.
Anisha is a very cute 6 year old who live in small village of Kashimpur in Bangladesh together with her family and a pony called Chloe. First we explore her world, her habits, every day life and school. Then we follow her on her extraordinary adventures, flying across other parts of the country and taking photos, when she finally gets her magic wish she has asked for her birthday.
The book finishes with Anisha’s words: ” I wonder where my next adventure will take me?” We also wonder… and we can’t wait to read more (!)
