IBBY Nepal: Developing wordless picture books for Nepalese children

There is a general lack of quality books for children in Nepal, including wordless picture books that are suitable for young children and can meet the needs of a multilingual school class. This project aims to produce seven picture books that can be distributed to school libraries, including remote areas. Over a period of seven months, through workshops involving writers, illustrators, editors and designers, it is hoped to create several books that will be tested with children of different mother tongues and those with hearing defects.
