Planet Pathrado Konkani Language Learning Book

Regular price $25.00

Konkani (konk-uh-Nee) is our founder, Akshata's, native language and what started the whole Little Patakha journey. We are thrilled to share it with you!

Konkani is a south Indian language full of distinctive stories, songs, food, and culture amassed over centuries. What is unique about this is that, until relatively recently, it had no official written script of its own. Which means that this language was passed down mostly orally from one generation to the next. Children did not grow up reading picture books in an official Konkani script and only heard the stories and songs from family and friends.

Akshata decided to take a small step forward in preserving the language when she visualized Planet Pathrado (puth-ruh-Doh) for her daughter. She created the alphabet with the Roman script used for English and the result is a first of its kind Konkani language learning picture book. With simple phonetic cues and access to online audio files, kids and grown-ups can easily learn to describe everyday life around them like a native speaker.

Check out the sample audio file you will have access to via the QR code in the book.

This book is great, I absolutely love the pronunciation audio but also how it written out in the book. My husband agrees it will be a great learning asset, he is fluent in the language but I actually got it to help myself learn Konkani so I can teach it to my baby when they are born.
