Synopsis

The Churki-burki Book of Rhyme by Gita Wolf

Churki and Burki are two sisters who lead a happy, busy life in their village with their family. They spend the day fishing in the river, driving the parrots from the corn field, gathering fruits, and enjoying the outdoors. A recounting of a charmed childhood, The Churki-Burki Book of Rhyme captures the experience of growing up as a girl in a tribal village in central India. Illustrated by Durga Bai - the well-known Gond artist - and with text by Gita Wolf, this evocative book straddles the worlds of memory and imagination.
