Kahani Tree is a unique little independent children’s bookstore in Mumbai. We offer a curated selection of unusual books for children, by independent publishers from all over India. We also have a range of delightful bilingual books and books in regional languages.
Through words and pictures, our books open to children a diverse, multicultural and exciting world. And yet, they have a unique Indian sensibility in the use of language, contexts and visuals.
Besides an unusual collection of books, Kahani Tree also organizes story-telling sessions, author interactions in schools and bookstores and helps to set up libraries and reading rooms.
At Kahani Tree, we are dedicated to developing a life-long love for reading. We believe that stories are magical and expand a child’s imagination. And we also believe that a love for books and reading is the best gift we can give children!
Kahani Tree supports small independent publishers whose books rarely find retail shelf-space. We work to provide a platform for these books, in our store as well as in schools, so that they can be experienced and enjoyed by many. We also promote books in Hindi and other regional languages, to make learning languages engaging and fun.
We love children’s books and we would be happy to help you find books you’ll love too. We know all our books and would be happy to understand your requirements to help you find what you are looking for. At Kahani Tree, we love telling you our favourite stories and showing you the ones that always work beautifully with the kids. And be warned, if you ask us about our favourite titles, you might end up with a bag full!
Kahani Tree also organizes story-telling sessions and author interactions, since we believe that these go a long way in making reading books fun and interesting. These events have been set up at schools, bookstores and literary festivals in the city.
Our most fulfilling activity has been the setting up of reading rooms and libraries in community schools and under-privileged schools. It gives us so much joy to make our books available to children in different parts of the country in the relevant regional languages, thereby opening up their little worlds and transporting them to new ones!
We have organised author visits in various schools. When authors go to schools for book reading events, students get excited about books and writers in general and the author’s work in particular. Author interactions are a great way to introduce children to the literary world.
If you are interested in hosting an author at your school, please contact us. If you have already arranged for an author to visit your school, we can assist you in providing books, as well as order forms for students.
Book events: We have organised several book launches and various literary events at bookstores and festivals all over the city.
Book fairs are a great opportunity for schools to expose their students and parents to a unique collection of Indian books that aren’t easily available in most bookstores. We can set up a customized exhibit to showcase these wonderful books right in the convenience of your school grounds.
Gift vouchers: The books at Kahani Tree are not only a pleasure to own but also great to gift. Kahani Tree gift vouchers are perfect if you want to gift someone a unique children’s book but don’t know what they like. We have vouchers of different denominations – Rs. 100, Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000.
We stock a wide range of Indian books featuring a variety of topics as well as bilingual books and books in regional languages. We can help you create, maintain and build your library. Consult with us to find books according to your specifications.
Return gifts: We love parents who enjoy stories so much that they want to share them with their children’s friends. We offer special discounts for those who want to give books out as return presents for a party.
Book Outreach Programme:
Through our Book Outreach Programme, we aim to support poorly resourced schools and organisations by providing appropriate reading material. We help set up reading rooms as well as organise book donations by partnering with various individuals. We also offer support and training to the curators of the reading rooms to enhance the children’s reading experience.
