About the Book
Kikli is a very unique book which encourages the use of multicultural games and dances in our schools to promote cultural awareness. It enhances the understanding of diversity and provides children with an opportunity to share their culture through the sounds of another language.
This beautifully illustrated rhyming book provides an opportunity to enjoy the art as well as learning experience. In this book children will learn about Kikli, a dance mostly popular among young girls in the region of Punjab, India.
This dual-language book is a great resource for teachers, librarians and parents to help develop literacy skills among children and increase awareness of the diversity of cultures in our communities.
