by Bharat Babies category: Crowdfunding
Founded in 2014, Bharat Babies is an independent publishing house that shares the stories of India through children's books, magazines, and digital media.
Over the past three years, we've produced nine books across four product categories. Everything from board books, illustrated books, early reader and now an exclusive art series. Our books empower parents and children alike to know the stories of their culture, history, and heritage. They help the youngest generation explore themes of bullying, mythology, and more through the lens of the South Asian culture.
When our story started, our mission was to help ensure the next generation of South Asian children could stay connected to their culture, history, and heritage. Three years in and now know that the story is much bigger.
It matters deeply especially when it comes to children's literature. Over the past 25 years, less than 11% of the children's books in the United States have contained multicultural content.
What does that mean exactly? It means that in 2013 when Bharat Babies was just an idea, there were 5x more books about dogs and trucks than there were about ANY children of color.
Today, that number remains much the same. In a world where parents are striving to raise kind, caring, global citizens, it is Bharat Babies mission to help drastically shift those numbers, starting with the stories that we know and love, the stories of South Asia.
Bharat Babies is an independent publishing house committed to creating diverse kid's lit for a diverse world. Starting with the stories of India, the company produces board books, illustrated books, early readers, and digital media perfect for the world's next generation of global citizens.
