Stories and Songs in Punjabi & Urdu CD/booklet

Stories and songs in Punjabi and Urdu

These stories and songs are for young children and their families. They are based on traditional folk songs, lullabies and stories, collected and re-told by Nuzhat Abbas, inspired by families known through her work with Peeple. The stories and song are written in Shahmuki (a script used in Pakistan) and English, and sung and told on the CD in Punjabi or Urdu. Hearing stories and songs in our mother tongue is important for our language development and of building strong relationships with those close to us. Nuzhat is a well-known singer, writer and storyteller (as well as a much-loved Peep practitioner), recently awarded at the University of Lahore for her work in promoting the Punjabi language. The book and CD contains three stories in Punjabi and three in Urdu, each followed by a song inspired by the story.
