The Churki-Burki Book of Rhyme

Gita Wolf, Durga Bai

A recounting of a rural childhood, The Churki-Burki Book of Rhyme captures the experience of growing up as a girl in a tribal village in central India. Work and play follow each other in this idyllic world of children’s games, songs and forays into the field and forest. Drawn from Gond tribal artist Durga Bai’s memories of her own childhood in the village of Patangarh, this tale of fun and rhyme introduces children to an unusual girlhood.
