A curated collection of outstanding books in English and in Hindi, for children and young adults, by the Parag Initiative of Tata Trusts. This list, published annually, comprises noteworthy books of the year with brief information about each title. It has been created with careful screening and multiple reviews by experts in the children’s literature sector. The list aims to promote access to a comprehensive curated list of good quality children’s literature that librarians, teachers, parents and children can refer to and read.
Parag Honour List was first launched in January 2020 at the New Delhi World Book Fair. We received books from 25+ publishers on various themes for the age group 0-16 years. The books comprised of original writings in the category of picture books, young readers and young adults, in fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
Parag is reaching out to schools, libraries, bookstores and parents and book fairs with the sole purpose of promoting high quality books through Parag Honour List.
