Welcome to Bookistaan

Bookistaan is India’s first recommendations based online children’s bookstore

As a small town bookstore, we have an inclination towards Indian publishing and writing, that hasn’t been able to find the routes into smaller towns. We believe it’s important for children to be exposed to their own literature for them to grow into empathetic individuals, proud of their own roots.

What is bookistaan ?

Bookistaan started as a book recommendations blog for parent and grew into a recommendations based online children’s bookstore. We feel that books more than anything help a person grow and so they ought to be a part of every childhood. So, for parents who want to expose their children to the magical world of books and don’t know where to start or for children who don’t know what to read next, we are your answer.

How to place an order?

Add your selection to the cart, the discount will be applied automatically. You can choose to pay by card or opt for COD.

What makes Bookistaan different ?

We are curators of #KidLit. Everything we recommend is from experience and research, which means we believe in every title that we push. Also, there is a lot of content out there today and we feel that great books produced in India get lost amidst unsurmountable piles. Our job is to hunt down great content and provide diverse, relatable books to our readers.

We don’t take returns in case you change your mind while the product is in transit, so please make sure you want the product before you place an order. However if the product turns out to be damaged, you can write to us on the following mail id: [email protected].

How do I decide which kind of book select for my child?

Children’s books are a bit complicated. You should read to your child based on their age and reading level. Here’s how we define the ages:

0-3 years: Stick to Board books for this age since infants and toddlers tend to tear off paper.

0-6 years: You can start exposing your child to Picture Books quite early as well. It is advisable to not hand over paperbacks to them if they are in the paper tearing phase.

6-9 years: This is when children are starting to read and it’s best to expose them to Phonics Readers and then Early Chapter books to ease them into the phase.

10-13 years: Middle grade novels.

14-18 years: Young Adult books
