Reading is like biting into an eclair – it shows you there’s a whole world of chocolate out there waiting to be eaten!Vidya Mani
Funky Rainbow: The Travelling Children’s Bookshop carries an exclusive selection of Indian children’s books and puts them up for sale at children’s events across Bangalore (and online for the rest of India). The books are handpicked by writers, illustrators and editors for children between the ages of 1 to 18 years. Our collection is curated to represent the best of Indian children’s writing because we believe that books by Indian writers work well for children in terms of connections, discoveries and experiences. Get in touch with us if you’d like our colourful bookshop to pop up at an apartment, school, office or event in the city of Bengaluru!
