Umachi’s picture books bring authentic stories from Indian heritage for today's kids in a contemporary style and medium. Their mantra is "Umachi First".
All Umachi picture books are stories from Indian history and mythology. The stories are carefully selected for relevance to young and impressionable minds. Once the story is picked, the content is heavily researched for authenticity and integrity. The aim is to bring the stories “as-is” without embellishments that take away from the integrity of the story.
The writing is terse and helps hold children's attention better. The vocabulary used gently stretches children's capabilities. Footnotes provide meanings of difficult words on the same page for easy reference. Each book is equipped with a glossary that defines terms which may be unfamiliar to kids. There is also an activity page at the end of each story. The illustrations are bright and lively and done by the best in the Industry. '
The author, Sripriya Sundararaman, leverages social media like facebook, twitter, BlogSpot and YouTube to interact with parents. She does this to make sure that parents are equipped to deal with any questions their kids may have about the stories.
Even though the picture books are primarily meant for kids of ages 3 to 7, they are a joy to read for anyone. The books are available in a diverse set of formats starting from paperback versions in the bookstores to the eBook versions on the iPad and Kindle. The intent of these stories is to enable young children of today to be optimistic, confident, and proud of their roots.
In short, it is the only authentic source of Indian heritage for today's kid.
When it comes to knowledge about Indian heritage, Umachi believes that every kid should "get it right" the first time. To “get it right, the first time”, parents can trust Umachi’s picture books. Thus the mantra - "Umachi First" – is very apt.
