Bravo Anjali! Sponsored
Author: Sheetal Sheth
Illustrator: Lucia Soto
For Anjali, playing the tabla is something that comes naturally. She loves the feel of the drum beneath her fingers and getting lost in the music. But when the boys in her class give her a hard time for being better than them, she messes up on purpose
When her teacher announces a contest where the winner will get to perform with him at his next concert, Anjali is perplexed. Winning the contest would be a dream for Anjali. But it seems like the better she gets, the meaner some of the kids are.
In this follow up to Always Anjali, Anjali realizes that she should never let anyone make her feel bad for being good at something. An important story for all children to remember to 'never dim their light.'
Over the course of our pre-order campaign, our mission is to raise enough funds to donate 1,001 copies of Bravo Anjali! Sponsored. Our community can help us achieve this goal by simply sponsoring a copy of the book (or ten!) for just $10 a book. With each book sponsored, we'll get closer to helping to not only bridge the diversity gap in children's lit and improve under-served communities' access to books that reflect their existence. We're excited and honored to do this, and hope our community will step up and help us meet our mission of raising funds to donate 1,001 copies of Bravo Anjali! Sponsored.

"In this gorgeously rendered tale, our beloved Anjali learns something it took me thirty years to understand: there's nothing wrong with shining brightly. I will carry the heart of this book with me wherever I go."
— Nic Stone, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of Dear Martin
"My kids and I love “Bravo Anjali!” I wish I’d had a book like this when I was a kid. I never saw myself represented in the books I read as a brown girl learning and performing a classical Indian instrument. It’s full of small, sharply observed moments that caught at my heart for how they detail the myriad ways we make ourselves small and silent. I wanted to cheer for Anjali as she let her light shine in all its glory." — Anoushka Shankar- Sitarist, composer
