Tisca Chopra will be coming out with a book on menstrual health. The book is aimed at readers within the age group of 9 and 13. The book titled ‘Book of Period’ will be published by Westland Publications. It is expected to come out in December 2020.
Talking about the book, Tisca said, “In trying to entertain and also provide suitable conversation topics for my daughter, I discovered the joy of children’s books. Books are a fantastic and practically effective tool for initiating critical conversations. While I enjoy reading and writing fiction, I believe children need good non-fiction book as well, to address the need for sharing information in a way they don’t feel lectured by parents. At this strange time, with all of us confined to our homes, I wanted to create a book that would be meaningful for many young girls including my Tara. And so my publisher and I discussed the idea of this book that may well become an essential read for girls on their way to becoming young women. Mothers, daughters, and their friends can bond around the book and discuss it as friends.”
“It is my hope that the book will inspire meaningful conversations and be a trusted resource for young girls in their growing up years, about issues they may be confused about and are hesitant to discuss. Through the book, I’d like them to know that that they are not alone and that there’s help at hand,” she further added.
